Taking Care of Family, Clients & Community for Three Decades

Jersey Mike’s designates Little Red Wagon Fund at Golisano Children’s Hospital as beneficiary for March 27 Day of Giving

Throughout March, customers at four Jersey Mike’s locations in Southwest Florida can donate to the Little Red Wagon Fund at Golisano Children’s Hospital.

The monthlong campaign culminates March 27 with Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving, when the four restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to Golisano Children’s Hospital.

The Little Red Wagon Fund fulfills the region’s critical pediatric healthcare needs through innovative programs, technologies and services.

“This is an incredibly generous and appreciated gesture by Jersey Mike’s. These local franchise owners are not just donating a portion of their proceeds or profits – it’s every transaction through the cash register that day!” said Armando Llechu, the hospital’s chief administrative officer. “These dollars will go directly to the Little Red Wagon Fund, which enables specialized services and programs to be developed, helping Golisano Children’s Hospital provide care to the neediest patients while helping to attract and retain top clinical talent. No child is turned away because of their family’s inability to pay, so we are thankful that corporate partners like Jersey Mike’s support us to ensure all patients have access to world-class pediatric care close to home.”

The four Southwest Florida locations donating proceeds to Golisano Children’s Hospital include:

  • Bonita Springs: 8951 Bonita Beach Road, Suite 250 (10 a.m. to 9 p.m.)
  • South Fort Myers: 6810 Shoppes at Plantation Drive, Suite 4 (10 a.m. to 9 p.m.)
  • Fort Myers: 4600 Summerlin Road, Suite C3 (10 a.m. to 9 p.m.)
  • Port Charlotte: 1804 Tamiami Trail, Suite E-6 (7 a.m. to 9 p.m.)

“Last year’s nationwide Month of Giving initiative raised more than $6 million for charities making a big difference in their local communities, and this year, we hope to raise even more,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “From the early days, it’s just what we’ve always done — give to give, as they say.”
