June 10, 2013
OKLAHOMA CITY – This Wednesday, June 12, Jersey Mike’s Subs will donate its sub sales to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to assist with disaster and hunger relief efforts.
“One of our guiding principles at Jersey Mike’s is to make a positive difference in the lives of others,” said Charlie Brown, Jersey Mike’s area director and franchise owner. “We all do what we can at times like these. Immediately after the storms, we started making sandwiches for the first responders and those affected. We gave away more than 3,000 subs in the next few days. Donating our sub sales on Wednesday, June 12 is just another way we can help.”

“In addition, throughout the month of June, we encourage Oklahomans to show the giving spirit that is so strong in our state by coming in and making a donation to the relief efforts,” said Brown. “As a thank you, contributors of $1 or more will receive a cookie or brownie. Together, we will help those in need to start the process of rebuilding.”
