The Valerie Fund & Jersey Mike's Team Up To Help NJ Kids!
(8/10/2021 / Maplewood, NJ) - The Valerie Fund is thrilled to announce a partnership with Jersey Mike's Subs that will benefit the 6,000 children battling cancer and blood disorders in the seven NJ, New York City, and metro Philadelphia Valerie Fund Children's Centers. From August 30th to September 25th, patrons of Jersey Mike's can donate $1, $3, or $5 at the register to help our Valerie Fund kids.
Running during Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month and Sickle Cell Awareness Months in September, this program comes at a time when our kids need us the most. Keeping the focus on our kids has never been more important! Since the start of the pandemic, many of our families are struggling economically. Food insecurity is reaching life-threatening levels. Emergency Funding has increased 150%. The Valerie Fund has been there to keep our kids safe physically and emotionally.
Your Jersey Mike's goes the extra mile ... around the neighborhood! A donation made at your local Jersey Mike's will be helping children and families from your community. #BecauseofValerie The Valerie Fund addresses the most immediate needs of patients and families whose lives are suddenly and dramatically upended. Core services provide emotional, practical, and financial support complementing state-of-the art medical treatment at seven Valerie Fund Children's Centers. The hallmark of The Valerie Fund services ensures that families and hospitals do not have to rely on insurance reimbursements to receive the range of support of a multi-disciplinary team including a staff of social workers, psychologists, child life specialists, and educational liaisons in a network that is one of the largest of its kind in the country.
Jersey Mike's Subs, with more than 2,500 locations open and under development nationwide, serves authentic fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs on in-store freshly baked bread — the same recipe it started with in 1956. Passion for giving in Jersey Mike's local communities is reflected in its mission statement "Giving...making a difference in someone's life."
