FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Jersey Mike’s Partners with Joliet Mom to Aid Jersey Shore Hometown

JOLIET, IL November 12, 2012 – On November 19 - 21, Jersey Mike’s Subs in Bolingbrook will donate $1 to Jersey Shore Relief for each sub sold at its 214 North Weber Road, Bolingbrook location. According to Bolingbrook Jersey Mike's General Manager, Tremell Bush, "we are hearing from shelters and distribution centers along the Jersey Shore about their ongoing need for diapers, wipes, baby formula, non-perishable foods, blankets, pillows, and toiletries. Our store will have a donation box for contributions of those non-perishable items which will be shipped directly to shelters and distribution centers in New Jersey’s hard-hit Ocean and Monmouth Counties."

Joliet resident Kimberly Blackburn grew up on the Jersey Shore and spent part of the summer there sharing her own childhood memories with her two young daughters. Media coverage of the Hurricane’s destruction, along with firsthand reports from family and friends, moved Blackburn to action. "I called my local Jersey Mike's right away because I knew they would want to help with Hurricane Relief efforts, and I was heartened by General Manager Tremell Bush's overwhelmingly generous response," recounts Blackburn.

The burgeoning Jersey Mike's franchise started in 1956 as a small sub shop in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, one of Hurricane Sandy's hardest hit areas. Recalls Blackburn, "I grew up on Jersey Mike's subs. My parents grew up on Jersey Mike's subs. I know firsthand the company's longstanding commitment to the Jersey Shore, and I am pleased to assist with their Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts." 

According to Bolingbrook Jersey Mike's General Manager, Tremell Bush, "Jersey Mike's franchises across the country are stepping up to help Jersey Shore residents. We hope everyone will join us November 19th, 20th, and 21st when we will be donating $1 directly to Hurricane Sandy Relief for every sub purchased.” 

Jersey Mike’s is located at 214 North Weber Road Bolingbrook, IL, next to the Verizon store and across from the Meijer. Their hours are 10am to 9pm.  You can call ahead to place your order at (630) 226-6855.
