Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh-sliced and fresh-grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, is launching its fourth annual fund-raising campaign to benefit Wreaths Across America (WAA). From Oct. 1 through Nov. 11, all Jersey Mike’s stores throughout the nation will collect donations for the nonprofit organization, which lays hundreds of thousands of remembrance wreaths at the headstones of the nation’s veterans during the holiday season.
Last year, Jersey Mike’s raised $218,282 for WAA. The money raised helped WAA lay more than 110,000 wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery on National Wreaths Across America Day in December 2012.
“We are honored to participate in such an important initiative recognizing the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to protect our freedom,” Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, said in a statement. “As we pay thanks to our veterans this year, Jersey Mike’s will proudly join and support Wreaths Across America in its mission to remember the fallen, honor those who serve and their families, and teach our children the value of freedom.”
This year, National Wreaths Across America Day takes place on Dec. 14 at Arlington National Cemetery and nearly 900 additional locations across the country. The events begin with a weeklong annual pilgrimage from Harrington, Maine, to Arlington National Cemetery to deliver the wreaths. Known as the world’s largest veterans parade, the Wreaths Across America convoy stops at schools, monuments, veterans’ homes, and communities each year.
