Thanks to Jersey Mike’s for Providing Free Red Ribbons to Greenville County Schools and a Special Deal for Students!
As a supporter of GFP’s mission of keeping kids off alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, for several years Jersey Mike’s has generously donated red ribbons to local schools in support of “Red Ribbon Week” and usually offers a special incentive to those students who wear a Jersey Mike’s ribbon in to one of their stores to encourage them to live a healthy, drug-free life style. So, show your appreciation of Jersey Mike’s efforts by patronizing their establishment and say, "Thank you"!
