How does your chapter get involved with Special Olympics?
We volunteer every year at the Special Olympics of Delaware's Fall Festival. Also, a representative of the organization has a workshop at each year's state leadership conference.
Our chapter teams up with our school student council to hold a Project UNIFY week. During this week, we work with Special Olympics to promote the unification of EVERYONE.
Last year, the students actually went directly to the special Olympic games to help out the students. They also raised money as a group and were HIGHLY encouraged to go to the "Polar Bear Plunge" in February.
Our chapter gets involved with the Special Olympics by stockpiling canned foods. Since our chapter is located in Florida, our area is very susceptible to hurricanes and we want to be able to provide relief as soon as possible to those who are in need.

Volunteer for the regional bowling and track & field events. We also participated in the summer games for Minnesota.
Our chapter participates in our States "Miracle Minute" each conference and some of us have done the Polar Plunge with our Lions Club.
We donate to our state's Chain of Love program: Where every dollar donated to special Olympics counts as one paper link in a paper link chain and we string it in our convention center at State Leadership Conferences. Last year, our chapter donated nearly 400 dollars. The state as a whole raised about 9,000 dollars.
