jmThanks to Jersey Mike’s and Everyone Who Participated in the “Month / Day of Giving 2014”!

Who could have imagined that simply grabbing a bite to eat would help continue the mission of teaching the community the dangers of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and other high risk activities? Jersey Mike’s partnered with Greenville Family Partnership (GFP) to make this very thought happen.

More

On March 26th, aptly named the “Day of Giving”, Jersey Mike’s graciously forwarded 100% of the day’s profit from seven designated Upstate locations to GFP. Not only did Jersey Mike’s do this, but they also allowed for and encouraged donations to GFP for the entire month of March! On the “Day of Giving,” the locations were packed and there were many people happy to donate to our cause. The donations will go towards updating materials, programs, and more of the numerous things we do here at GFP.

 

GFP would, collectively, like to thank Jersey Mike’s for allowing us to be the beneficiary of the Jersey Mike’s “Month / Day of Giving” 2014 and we would also like to thank every person that contributed to this event, either through a purchase or donation.

Thank you for helping GFP keep kids off alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs!

RSS"Wouldn’t it be great to be able to walk into any restaurant in all of Greenville County and not have to worry about breathing in smoke? Or, do you think county or state-wide smoke-free ordinances that allow non-smokers - especially children - to breathe fresh, clean, smoke-free air a violation of smokers’ rights?

TESTIMONIALS

"This class was very informative. The steps and procedures parents should take to handle teens are accurate. Like the “deflectors” or specific words parents can use to deflate an argument before it can even get started. I used them with my child and they actually worked! Sometimes parents think they know everything about being a parent but this class proves we don’t and I think every parent should put their pride aside and admit these classes can help." ~~~ Parent who took the "Back in Control" Workshop
