STARKVILLE, Miss.—Mississippi State's TK Martin Center for Technology and Disability is partnering with Jersey Mike's Subs of Starkville for the national restaurant chain's 14th annual Month of Giving fundraising campaign.

Throughout March, customers can round up their order total as donations at checkout or through the Jersey Mike's mobile app. The campaign will culminate with Giving Day on March 27, when 100% of the day's sales at Starkville's Jersey Mikes will benefit the center. The restaurant is located at 831 MS-12 Suite A, next to Zaxby's.

"We are thrilled to partner with Jersey Mike's of Starkville for the third year in a row," said Kasee ​​K. Stratton-Gadke, executive director of the Mississippi Institute on Disabilities, which houses the TK Martin Center. “Our goal is to reach $10,000 this year, and with Jersey Mike's commitment to local charities, the TK Martin Center can continue its mission of empowering people with disabilities throughout Mississippi. By supporting us, the community helps make a lasting impact on lives and foster a more inclusive future. We invite everyone to support us throughout the month of March.”

Teresa Jayroe, dean of the MSU College of Education, added: “We are grateful to Jersey Mike's of Starkville for their support of the TK Martin Center through the Month of Giving campaign. “Their generosity not only highlights their shared commitment to helping people with disabilities, but also sets a remarkable example of community partnership.”
