PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Grab a sub and lend a hand! Jersey Mike’s Subs is back with its 13th annual Day of Giving.
Proceeds from sandwich sales nationwide will go towards massive donations to local charities.
Every single dollar in sales made on Wednesday, March 29 at local sub-shops will go to Special Olympics Oregon. About two dozen stores in Oregon are participating in the Day of Giving event.
The proceeds from Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving “sets us up for an incredible summer season,” said Britt Oase, CEO of Special Olympics Oregon. “We are a statewide organization, so we’ll be having regional competitions across the state, we’re in schools. And this is a growth year for us, so we’re excited to welcome thousands of athletes with intellectual disabilities to Special Olympic Oregon where sport is a platform for health, fitness, family, fun, joy [and] friendships.”
Last year, the company raised $20 million nationwide during its Month of Giving.
