Roundup for Special Olympics New York Comes to Jersey Mike’s Locations Across Long Island

Initiative Spearheaded by Board Member Mitch Cohen

Long Island, NY – This January, to kick off a new year of giving, Jersey Mike’s Subs throughout Long Island will offer their customers an opportunity to support Special Olympics New York athletes and programs by rounding up their change at the cashier. Mitch Cohen, a member of the Special Olympics NY Board of Directors and franchisee with Jersey Mike’s, has been instrumental in this effort.

“Nothing is better than being able to give back,” said Cohen. “Being part of the Special Olympics New York Board gives me the chance to do that and watch these amazing athletes continue to grow into the best people they can be.” 

“We are so grateful to Jersey Mike’s and most of all, its customers, for this generous campaign,” said Stacey Hengsterman, President and CEO of Special Olympics New York. “Mitch Cohen has been and continues to be an amazing advocate of our movement.”
