Jersey Mike’s Celebrated 14th Annual “Month of Giving”

Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer joined forces with 70 Jersey Mike’s Subs in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex for the 14th annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign to support local charities. During the month of March, customers made a donation to Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer (WOKC) at participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants.  

The “Month of Giving” campaign culminated with Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27, when DFW Jersey Mike’s restaurants gave 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer, earning $643,000 to WOKC and $25 million overall throughout the country. This was a record for Wipe Out Kids' Cancer.  

"WOKC is extremely blessed to have this amazing and unique partnership with Jersey Mike's. It is unheard of for a company to donate 100% of sales, but since 2011, Jersey Mike's has done just that. This wonderful gift will be used to provide comfort and hope to kids (and their families) fighting pediatric cancer,” said Kris Cumnock, CEO Wipe Out Kids Cancer.

“We are profoundly grateful to Jersey Mike’s, their DFW franchisees, and their customers for their kind generosity, treasured partnership, and continued support toward our mission of eradicating pediatric cancer and providing hope for our young children battling this disease,” said WOKC Founder Cindy Brinker Simmons. “Jersey Mike’s has created an astounding culture of giving that has deeply touched the heroic families we serve.”  

For thirteen years, Jersey Mike’s owners and operators throughout the country have raised over $113 million for more than 200 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks, and more.
