My name is Michael Dominick, Director of Communications for Make-A-Wish New Jersey. Our mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
This past March, 95 Jersey Mike’s Subs Stores nationwide selected to partner with Make-A-Wish during their annual “Month of Giving” Campaign. 52 Jersey Mike’s Subs Stores in New Jersey partnered with Make-A-Wish New Jersey, including Jersey Mike’s Subs in Flemington and other local stores. Throughout March, customers were encouraged to donate to Make-A-Wish, and on March 29th, the “Day of Giving,” Jersey Mike’s stores donated 100% of sales for the day to Make-A-Wish.
Here in New Jersey, over $263,000 was raised to help our chapter grant wishes to local children with life-threatening medical conditions through the campaign. Attached are a News Release announcing the campaign’s success here in New Jersey, photos from the campaign (captions below) and a Fact Sheet about our organization.
We would be thrilled to share this news with the Hunterdon County News and your readers. Thanks to Jersey Mike’s Subs, approximately 25 more New Jersey children will experience a wish-come-true. We will also be sharing the wishes adopted through the funds donated by Jersey Mike’s with stores throughout New Jersey as they are granted over the course of the coming months.
Thank you in advance for your support of our mission and for helping us celebrate what Jersey Mike’s Subs has done for our wish children here in New Jersey
