Eleven Jersey Mike‘s Subs locations throughout the Tri-Cities raised a record total of $100,000 for the Bristol Motor Speedway chapter of Speedway Children‘s Charities during the 13th annual March “Month of Giving” campaign, it was announced today by officials from the popular restaurant chain. It is the 10th time that SCC-Bristol has been chosen as the recipient of the “Month of Giving” program.

“We are so blessed to once again be included in Jersey Mike‘s Month of Giving, and we can‘t say thank you enough to Jersey Mikes and to our community for their generosity,” said Claudia Byrd, executive director of the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children‘s Charities. “Partnerships like this one are essential to helping our chapter raise the funds necessary to continue to assist the agencies and children in our region.”

Jersey Mike‘s locations nationwide accepted donations throughout the month, building to the company‘s Day of Giving on March 29, when nearly 2,500 restaurants donated 100 percent of sales, not just profits, to local charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

“We are so thankful for our customers‘ tremendous response to our Month-of-Giving and Day-of-Giving campaign, to help raise money for the Bristol‘s chapter of Speedway Children‘s Charities. We love being a partner with such a great organization because they help more than 70 children‘s organizations throughout NE Tennessee and SW Virginia.  These funds will help make a difference in the lives of thousands of kids in our area,” said David Wampler, a local Jersey Mike‘s Franchisee.

This fundraising total exceeds the $20 million raised during last year‘s campaign. Since Month of Giving began in 2011, Jersey Mike‘s has raised more than $88 million for local charities.

“We were humbled to see how our customers came out in droves to support their local charities on Day of Giving,” said Caroline Jones, senior vice president, Jersey Mike‘s Franchise Systems, Inc., and daughter of Founder Peter Cancro. “Day of Giving is our busiest day, and we look forward to it all year. Thank you to our customers, franchise owners, team members and charity partners for making a difference!”

“Giving…making a difference in someone‘s life” has been the mission of Jersey Mike‘s from the beginning.
