Know that you are never alone- you always have Bryanna's Love

Burtonsville resident Kristena Kitchen was awarded one of five $5,000 Sub Abover grants from Jersey Mike’s Subs in recognition of her efforts to make a difference in the local community through Bryanna’s Love, Inc.


Kitchen said that 100 percent of all donations go to fulfill their mission, and families never pay for anything related to the charity.


Presented to those making a difference in their local communities, the $5,000 grants are designed to help the winners make an even bigger impact.


“It’s inspiring to read the stories of so many who are making a difference in someone’s life,” said Rich Hope, Chief Marketing Officer, Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems, Inc. “That’s been a guiding principle of Jersey Mike’s since our Founder Peter Cancro bought his first sub shop at the age of 17, and we’re happy to recognize Kristena for fulfilling that vision.”


Congratulations, Kristena and Bryanna's Love!
