Make-A-Wish New Mexico is joining forces with seven Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout Los Lunas, Albuquerque and Rio Rancho for the 9th annual March Month of Giving campaign to fund local charities.
During the month of March, customers can make a donation to Make-A-Wish New Mexico at participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants.
The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving on Wednesday, March 27, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales — not just profit — to Make-A-Wish New Mexico.
In 2018, the New Mexico Jersey Mike’s locations raised more $20,000 to help grant wishes during the campaign.
“Last year’s nationwide Month of Giving initiative raised more than $6 million for charities making a big difference in their local communities, and this year, we hope to raise even more,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years-old. “From the early days, it’s just kind of what we’ve always done — give to give, as they say. This March, I invite you to visit Jersey Mike’s to help support an important cause in your neighborhood.”
Make-A-Wish New Mexico grants life-changing wishes to children battling critical illness.
Last year, 106 children throughout the state of New Mexico received a wish.
