Smashburger Does Sandy Relief Jersey Style
On Wednesday, Garden State Smashburgers will donate a portion of sales from its New Jersey burgers to help Jerseyans impacted by Sandy.
Smashburger is giving customers a tasty way to help with Superstorm Sandy relief.
The burger chain's New Jersey locations, including the Parsippany branch on Route 46 and the Morris Plains site on Route 10, will donate $2 for every New Jersey burger sold this Wednesday to the Restore the Shore Projects Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.
(The New Jersey burger features a beef patty topped with bacon, blue cheese, onions, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on an onion bun.)
Restore The Shore Projects is an initiative to assist in disaster relief for those affected by the superstorm. The organization's main goal is to work quickly to provide relief and deliver it right into the hands of victims and restore their lives back to normal.
“As New Jerseyans, every one of us has fond memories of the Jersey Shore—from spending time on its beautiful beaches, to its vibrant nightlife,” said Scott Gillman, CEO of Mascott Corporation, which owns Smashburger's New Jersey sites. “We wanted to do our part to contribute to hyperlocal relief organizations, like Restore the Shore, which is getting much-needed supplies directly into the hands of those affected most by this tragedy.
"We hope our customers will join us at any of our 11 Smashburger locations on Dec. 12 to help us raise money for this worthy cause.”
