Windwood Family Services is joining forces with nine Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the Charleston area for the third annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign.
The campaign will culminate in the nationwide event, Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27.
During the month of March, customers can make a donation to Windwood Family Services at any area Jersey Mike’s restaurant. Then on March 27, a special nationwide celebration called “Day of Giving” will take place at all Jersey Mike’s locations to benefit 86 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
On that day, Charleston area residents are invited to come in to a local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and enjoy a sub meal. All area Jersey Mike’s restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to Windwood Family Services.

“Windwood Family Services is thrilled to once again partner with Jersey Mike’s,” said Kristin Power, Director of Development Windwood Family Services, in a news release.
“We’ve learned that the team at Jersey Mike’s is as dedicated to the quality of their community as they are to the product they put their name to every day. Proceeds from the Month of Giving will provide food, shelter, medical and emotional care to South Carolina boys that have been victims of abuse and neglect. Thank you for your support.”
Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised nearly $858,000 for 74 different charities nationwide.
Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $5 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“I would like to extend a personal invitation to come in and enjoy a Jersey Mike’s sub during our Month of Giving in support of one of your local charities,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old. “The opportunities to give are all around us so we hope this March you will join us to make a difference in someone’s life.”
