Jersey Mike’s Subs Gives Away Free Meals for the Entire Month of September

As a part of its exciting new partnership with the American Red Cross, Triangle area Jersey Mike’s Subs will be giving away free meals to anyone who donates blood to the American Red Cross during the month of September


Raleigh, NC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/06/2007 -- Jersey Mike’s Subs will be giving away a SUBstantial number of free meals during the month of September. Due to a new partnership between the sub chain and the American Red Cross, Jersey Mike’s Subs will give a free meal to any and all who donate blood by way of the American Red Cross Triangle donation centers during the month of September.

Blood donations can be made at any one of the four American Red Cross donation centers in the Triangle. These centers can be found in Raleigh, North Raleigh, Cary and Durham and each location averages 25-40 donors per day. After a donation is made, donors will receive a coupon for a free meal, which includes their choice of any regular sub, chips and a drink, which can be redeemed at any of the participating Jersey Mike’s Subs locations.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Jersey Mike’s Subs to drive donations for the month of September. September is one of the more difficult months for us,” commented Robin Sparrow, District Manager of the Durham Service Area of Carolinas Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. “With people on vacation and out enjoying the summer months, it becomes more challenging to get people into our centers to donate blood. There is still an on-going need for these life-saving donations and we hope through this partnership with Jersey Mike’s Subs, people will dedicate more time during the month of September to stop by one of our centers and make a donation.”

With the use of in-store promotions, representatives of Jersey Mike’s Subs are eager to persuade patrons to go to one of the American Red Cross donation centers and make a donation. “We want to raise awareness about the need for donations, not just within our stores, but within the entire Triangle community,” commented Rich Domanski, President of the Triangle Jersey Mike’s Subs Co-op. “We are committed to doing whatever we can to help the American Red Cross in their mission of neighbors helping neighbors in need,” Domanski added.

The Jersey Mike’s Subs stores participating in the collaboration are all part of the Jersey Mike’s Subs Triangle Cooperative, which is a group of over 20 Jersey Mike’s Subs stores in the area. These stores elected to get involved with the American Red Cross in hopes that the attraction of free food will bring awareness to the dire need for blood donations.
