When you go out to eat this month you can be helping kids at the same time! March is the month of giving at Jersey Mike's Subs nationwide and here in East Texas, Tyler locations are committed again this year to help children that are served by CASA for Kids of East Texas.

CASA for Kids of East Texas is an advocate for abused and neglected children here in Smith County along with those in Van Zandt and Wood Counties too. The non-profit organization provides trained volunteer advocates who represent the children's best interest in court with the goal of achieving permanent living arrangements for each child.

This is the seventh year for the Jersey Mike's Subs month long campaign. Throughout the month of March, patrons can leave donations for CASA and receive a special coupon for their generosity. The campaign will wrap up on Jersey Mike's 'Day Of Giving' on Wednesday, March 29th when Jersey Mike's will donate 100% of the day's sales to CASA For Kids Of East Texas.

CASA Executive Director, Mary Jo Burgess says,

CASA is very appreciative of the generosity and support of Jersey Mike’s Subs. The number of abused and neglected children in our community who need us continues to rise at an alarming rate. With incredible partners like Jersey Mike’s, we will continue to advocate for the best interest of the children we serve. On behalf of our staff, volunteers, and stakeholders, thanks goes to Jersey Mike’s for their compassion, commitment and for providing a fun and easy way for our community to make a difference in the life of a child."

Jersey Mike's founder and CEO, Peter Cancro's company has collectively donated more than $18 million to local causes and charities throughout the month of giving campaign nationwide. He says,

I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your family to visit Jersey Mike’s Subs throughout the month of March, and especially on Day of Giving when 100 percent of sales – every penny – goes to help a great local cause."

Jersey Mike's Month of Giving happens throughout the entire month of March.
