COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine, and MANASQUAN, NJ, Nov. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, national nonprofit Wreaths Across America  (WAA) is proud to announce that Jersey Mike’s Subs, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 2,600 locations nationwide, has issued a #GivingTuesday challenge to help raise funds to sponsor veterans’ wreaths for placement at Arlington National Cemetery on National Wreaths Across America Day – Saturday, Dec. 16, 2023.

Jersey Mike’s has once again stepped up to help WAA reach its goal of placing a fresh, handmade balsam veteran’s wreath on every eligible marker at Arlington National Cemetery. Every $17 wreath sponsorship made at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/JerseyMikes through Friday, Dec. 8, 2023, will be matched by the company, up to $250,000!

Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s has supported WAA’s mission with contributions totaling more than $3.5 million dollars. Last year, across the country more than 2.7 million sponsored veterans’ wreaths were placed in honor of veterans, including on all the eligible markers of those buried at Arlington National Cemetery. “Jersey Mike’s franchisees across the country support the year-long mission to Remember the fallen, Honor those who serve, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.

“The incredible team at Jersey Mike’s Subs has been such a tremendous part of the growth of the program for more than a decade,” said Karen Worcester, executive director, Wreaths Across America. “Their continued support ensures that we will be able to fulfill our mission in remembrance of the brave men and women who committed themselves unselfishly at the most critical moments in our nation’s history to ensure our freedom.”
