“In 1999, I began working at Jersey Mike’s in Howell while I was a high school student,” said Schork. “The sense of community that I experienced as an employee working in Howell still holds true today, and I am looking forward to building those same ties here in Morganville. We chose to partner with STOMP The Monster™ because of their commitment to giving back and healthy living and we are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference for those who benefit from this cause.”
