Published on January 24, 2023
FOR RELEASE: January 24, 2023
Mayor Janice S. Mironov and local legislators joined Jersey Mike’s and Prestige New Jersey All-Star United States 2023, chaired by Evelyn McCleod, for a service event to honor the work and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The service project was to designate and promote Jersey Mike’s as a drop off site for residents to bring lightly used clothing, coats, shoes and children’s clothing and warm socks for those in need. The donations are to benefit area non-profits Rise and Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (T.A.S.K.). Additionally, Jersey Mike’s donated a portion of proceeds from pre-ordering subs for Super Bowl parties to support these area organizations. Jersey Mike’s East Windsor, located in the East Windsor Township Center Plaza at 319 Route 130 North, will continue to accept donations through the end of February.
Mayor Mironov stated, “East Windsor Township recognizes service as an important community value and is grateful to Jersey Mike’s and Prestige New Jersey for initiating and partnering on this project to help others. Since 2011, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $67 million for worthy local charities. It is especially meaningful to do so honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King and this “Day of Service”. We specifically thank Evelyn McCleod of Prestige New Jersey All-Star United States 2023 for all her good work, as well as the Jersey Mike’s hosts, franchise owners Evan Mayer and Gerrit Curran; Director of Operations Tom Orrok, and General Manager Mike Mariano for their generous support of our local non-profit Rise and the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, which has served over 6 million meals to County residents.”
Assemblyman Dan Benson stated, “Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a federal holiday designated as a “National Day of Service”, and it was great to join together at Jersey Mike’s to support this positive example of community partnership to help those in need.”
Evelyn McCleod, Prestige New Jersey All-Star United States 2023, reminded everyone, “Service to others isn’t an annual event; it’s a lifestyle!”.
