Jersey Mike's raises nearly $4,400 for Monroe School District

Monroe's Jersey Mike's Subs sandwich shop made a big splash during its grand opening fundraising effort, raising nearly $4,400 for the Monroe Public Schools Foundation.

When Jersey Mike's Subs opened its doors in Monroe in December, its leadership team selected the Monroe Public Schools Foundation as the beneficiary of its traditional grand opening fundraiser. To raise money, the new restaurant circulated thousands of coupons that provided a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to the Monroe Public Schools Foundation.

Additionally, Jersey Mike's donated $3 to the foundation every time a fundraising coupon was redeemed. The restaurant raised $4,397 for the foundation, which was divided evenly between all Monroe School District schools.

The Monroe Public Schools Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to supporting the local public schools. The foundation's mission is "to develop and provide community support to strengthen the achievement of all students within the Monroe Public Schools.GÇ¥

Jersey Mike's Subs is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday and located in the Ben Franklin Shopping Center at 19555 U.S. 2 in Monroe.
