The Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters is joining forces with 11 Jersey Mike’s restaurants in the Hampton Roads area for the eighth annual March “Month of Giving” campaign.

During the month of March, customers can make a donation at participating restaurants to the hospital. The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on March 28, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales — not just profit — to the children’s hospital.

On Day of Giving, local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators throughout the country will donate their resources and every single dollar that comes in to more than 170 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

“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 — will help support neighborhood needs,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and chief executive officer, who started the company when he was only 17 years old.

The Jersey Mike’s at 6216 College Drive in North Suffolk is among the participating restaurants.

Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised more than $5.5 million for local charities nationwide. An astounding $4.6 million of that amount was raised on Day of Giving alone. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $28 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
