Jersey Mike’s locations in Southwest Florida are partnering with Golisano Children’s Hospital to raise funds for the hospital's innovative programs, technologies and services throughout March. A portion of all purchases made at any of the 13 participating locations in the region will be donated to the hospital. On March 29, Jersey Mike’s will hold its Day of Giving, where all 13 local franchises will donate 100% of the day’s sales to Golisano Children’s Hospital. Last year's campaign raised $158,000 for the hospital, which helps provide care to patients in need of pediatric healthcare in the region.

Katy Martinez, Director of Development for Lee Health Foundation, expressed gratitude for the generosity of Jersey Mike’s, highlighting that franchise owners would donate all transactions, including those made through the cash register and pickup and delivery app orders. She added that the funds raised would directly support the hospital's mission to provide world-class pediatric care to patients in need.

Customers can contribute to the campaign by visiting any of the participating locations or making donations through the Jersey Mike’s mobile app or onsite throughout March. The participating Jersey Mike’s locations in Southwest Florida include Fort Myers, South Fort Myers, Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, and Venice.

Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, Peter Cancro, who started the company when he was only 17 years old, has personally invited families to visit Jersey Mike’s Subs in March and especially on Day of Giving when all sales will support a great local cause. The company has raised over $67 million for local charities since it began its Month of Giving campaign in 2011, and hopes to exceed last year’s record-breaking national fundraising total of $20 million this year.
