Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving
On Wednesday, March 27th, ALL Jersey Mike’s Lincoln locations will donate 100% of their sales to the Lincoln TeamMates Mentoring Program. Please spread the word and encourage all your friends, family, and co-workers to eat at Jersey Mike’s on Wednesday.
Eat a sub. Make a difference in your community.
Jersey Mike’s Lincoln Locations:
- 5001 O Street (across from Hy-Vee)
- 210 N. 14th Street (Downtown)
- 2801 Pine Lake Road (across from South Point)
During the promotion, TeamMates plans to have representatives in each of the locations during peak hours to greet and thank patrons. We also need help delivering large group orders. If you would be interested in volunteering in either capacity, please click on the button below.
“March Gladness,” is a campaign that encourages mentors to recruit friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors, organization or church members to be a TeamMate. Our mentors are our best recruiters, and we are actively pushing toward our goal of 1,400 Lincoln TeamMates mentors by the end of 2019!
We are planning four short, mentor-focused meetings at regional schools in Lincoln during the end of March and beginning of April as opportunities to woo potential recruits. Not only will the meetings be fun and interactive, with snacks, words of encouragement from Coach Osborne, and testimonies from active mentors, but mentors and their guests, primed to consider mentoring, will receive raffle tickets for awesome prizes! It’s a win-win-win for TeamMates, mentors and interested guests!
Please make this the month you invite a potential mentor to join our TeamMates of Lincoln team. Use the link below to sign yourself and a friend or two up. Mentors get a raffle ticket for each person they bring, and guests get a ticket for attending!
As mentors, you know the value of volunteering. Encouraging your mentee to complete a TeamMates community service project can lead to conversations about helping those in need and foster an attitude of community care.
TeamMates of Lincoln has prepared service project kits available through April. All projects can be completed during a weekly meeting. You are welcome to request more than one project kit each month. Kits are limited, but you may also use your own supplies. Service projects are due to the TeamMates office on the date listed on the instructions.
This month, you and your mentee can bring joy to a patient at the Dialysis Center of Lincoln, Inc., an independent, not-for-profit, community-based center. DLC, Inc. was the first freestanding dialysis facility in the country created by the joint effort of two independent hospitals, and the center has been recognized for its innovations since its founding in 1987. Help brighten the lives of those in need of treatment at the DLC by making beautiful flowers to let them know they have friends at TeamMates.
