Jersey Mike’s spreads the love to Dartmouth High
Dartmouth High School is getting a big boost thanks to the town’s newest sandwich shop.
On August 12, the manager and owners of Jersey Mike’s presented Dartmouth High administrators with a $4,000 check, which the sandwich shop raised during its grand opening charity program.
Upon opening, the owners of each new Jersey Mike’s location pick a nonprofit or organization in the community to raise money for.
In this case, owners Chris and Netta Hall and general manager Michael Donaghy chose Dartmouth High School.
When the new restaurant on Faunce Corner Road opened on June 5, staff handed out special coupons and ran special promotions to fundraise for the school.
“We grassrooted it in the local community,” Netta said. “We handed out sub cards with a $2 donation to the high school, and coupons.”
“All in all we wanted to raise money for the high school and the community,” she added.
Dartmouth High Principal Ross Thibault said the money will go towards hosting a back-to-school bash for students. Although it is still being planned, he said the plan is to have the bash to coincide with the first varsity football game.
“[Jersey Mike’s] have been a great community partner,” Thibault said.
As for future fundraisers, Netta and Chris said they are always looking for new partners in the community. They plan to host a fundraiser to benefit Where Angels Play Foundation, which builds playgrounds to help communities which have experienced tragedy recover.
