Date Night Idea | Support a Local Fundraiser

This post is sponsored by Jersey Mike's, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.



Life with a new dog means simplifying our routine, and while Adam and I love the idea of being able to spend the entire afternoon and evening out on the town for date night, we realize that we are fortunate now to just get a small fraction of time together out of the house. Instead of going for dinner and a movie, going on a night-long bar crawl, or spending the night in a hotel for a quick staycation, our date nights these days involve staying local and spending just under an hour out of the house. 

Community service and getting involved with supporting local businesses that are raising money for organizations through fundraisers is something I have been doing since I was 19 years old. Being a sister of a community service sorority, I developed a passion for helping good causes and learning the joy that comes with it. Adam and I have done a few projects together, but admittedly, I wish we had more time to actually get involved directly rather than just donate or support sales that are direct fundraisers for good causes. 

But when time management becomes tough, we always enjoy finding a way to support local fundraisers. For our newest date night idea, we plan to head to our neighborhood Jersey Mike's down the street to support them in their "Month of Giving" initiative. 

All throughout the month of March, Jersey Mike's is running their "Month of Giving" initiative, and they are inviting their guests to come into their stores to make a donation to each location's designated charity cause. Each location nationwide is supporting a different charity, based on the community and needs of where each store is located (and a few examples of these kinds of charities include youth organizations, hospitals, and food banks). We are excited that our neighborhood Jersey Mike's is donating to Phoenix Children's Hospital, which we have both gotten involved in supporting in the past! 

On Wednesday, March 27, all nationwide Jersey Mike's store proceeds will be donated to each store's designated charity! This day, March 27, the Jersey Mike's "Day of Giving," is a great opportunity to stop by your nearest location to get a delicious sub sandwich and support a good cause. 

Be sure to set your calendars and stop by for lunch or dinner on March 27--we plan on spending our dinner date night at our nearby Jersey Mike's, and I may even stop by for lunch that day if I can manage it! To find your local Jersey Mike's location so you can visit on March 27, you can use their store locator online.
