As ride-or-die Jimmy John’s fans may know, sales of exclusive merch pieces directly benefit the Jimmy John’s Foundation, which works closely with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The newest jacket collab with Starter will be joining this cause, and all proceeds will be donated.
Together, the Jimmy John’s Foundation and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America teach children the skills they need to grow into successful, independent adults. Since the Foundation’s creation in 2021, it has donated more than $425,000 to like-minded programs.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of America, meanwhile, offer mentorships and a safe space for kids to learn, grow, and find opportunities they might not otherwise have. In addition to monetary donations, the nonprofit is also always looking for volunteers, mentors, and partners. That said, if you can’t get your hands on a Jimmy John’s jacket, there are plenty of other ways to contribute to the cause.
