Jersey Mike’s Subs is once again teaming up with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Foundation to help underserved youth across the country.
On Sept. 9 and 10, Jersey Mike’s will donate 20% of sales from its more than 2,500 locations nationwide to support the nonprofit’s mission of bringing tennis and education together to change kids’ lives.
This year, the Manasquan-based chain hopes to surpass the $4 million it raised in 2022 for the USTA Foundation’s “Rally for the Future” initiative, which provides free or low-cost tennis and educational programming from the National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) to over 130,000 under-resourced youth in more than 270 diverse communities.
Additionally, NJTL chapters in 35 markets will host “Community Play Days” this weekend, featuring a combination of tennis programming and a free lunch from Jersey Mike’s for all youth participants.
Kathleen Wu, USTA Foundation board president, commented, “We are incredibly grateful to Jersey Mike’s for its generosity and continued support of our mission. Together, we are helping young people across the country discover their passion and achieve their dreams.”
Since 2019, Jersey Mike’s has raised more than $8 million for the organization.
Peter Cancro, the company’s founder and chief executive officer, said in a statement, “Come to Jersey Mike’s this Saturday and Sunday and help support the kids’ programs. Together, we always make a difference.”
Jersey Mike’s raised a record-breaking $21 million for charity in March as part of its 13th annual “Month of Giving” campaign. Click here to read more.
