Jersey Mike's Subs Presents YMCA With $10,605

Thursday, April 18, 2019

Representatives from Chattanooga Jersey Mike’s locations on Thursday presented the YMCA of Metropolitan Chattanooga with a $10,605 check as part of the restaurant chain’s annual Month of Giving. 

The campaign culminated in March of this year, when approximately 1,500 Jersey Mike’s restaurants, including those locally in the Chattanooga area, donated 100 percent of sales, not just profits, to more than 200 different charities across the nation. 

The partnership between the YMCA and Jersey Mike’s is in its fourth year. Both organizations’ mission involves bettering the communities in which we live and positively impacting lives.  

“We are very grateful for community partners like Jersey Mike’s,” said Janet Dunn, YMCA of Metropolitan Chattanooga president and CEO. “They share our vision for creating a culture of giving.”  

The money presented by Jersey Mike’s to the YMCA will go towards the association’s Community Support Campaign, which raises nearly $1 million annually.
