Jersey Mike's Month of Giving raises $15,135 to benefit Sacred Heart Children's Hospital



In March, Jersey Mike's Subs celebrated its 10th annual 'Month of Giving,' raising money for charities nationwide. Locally, a percentage all sales were donated to Providence Health Care Foundation to support the Reach Out and Read program at Providence Pediatrics Clinics. This year, the two Spokane Jersey Mike's locations raised a record total of $15,135.

"We are so fortunate to be on the receiving end of Jersey Mike's generosity," said Joyce M. Cameron, chief philanthropy officer, Providence Health Care Foundation. "This gift will enable us to purchase thousands of books for children who visit Providence Pediatrics Clinics."

The Reach Out and Read program supports early literacy by involving the child's doctor. At each well-care visit between the ages of 6 months and 5 years, children are given an age-appropriate book to take home. Parents also learn how cuddling together and sharing books build language and literacy skills that will help children be ready for school. Funds raised during Jersey Mike's Month of Giving will be used to purchase and distribute books through certified Providence Health Care Reach Out and Read pediatricians.

The 'Month of Giving' fundraising campaign culminated on March 27 with the 'Day of Giving,' where 100 percent of all sales, not just profits, are donated to a charity selected by local franchise managers. Since launching its partnership with Providence Health Care Foundation four years ago, Jersey Mike's Subs has raised a total of $45,740 for programs at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital and Providence Pediatric Clinics.
