WILLIAMSPORT – For the past four years, The Lycoming County United Way joined forces with Jersey Mike’s Subs in Williamsport PA for their Months and Days of Giving.

Every year in March, customers are eligible to make donations through the Jersey Mike’s mobile app or in each store. On the annual Day of Giving, local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators donate their resources and every single dollar that comes in. Jersey Mike’s restaurants give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to the Lycoming County United Way.

This was a record breaking year. In total sales, almost $8,500 were raised throughout the month of March 2021. From opening day to date, the Williamsport Jersey Mike’s teams have raised over $22,000 to support United Way funded programs.

“When Matt Patterson called us in the summer of 2017, we had no idea what kind of generosity to expect. Not only does the franchise support us financially, but they believe in our community and had fun under tough circumstances to raise a record amount in March,” said Ron Frick, President of the local United Way. “Despite numerous obstacles, a small team worked all day to take care of customers and raise this money without any selfishness on their part. We are incredibly grateful.”

We are honored to have partnered with Jersey Mike’s and grateful to have tremendous support from our community members. Thank YOU for supporting the Lycoming County United Way! Together we make an impact. Together we Live United. Because change doesn’t happen alone.
