The Winslow Unified School District Special Olympics will be out soon asking for donations for financial assistance to allow them the opportunity to attend the state Special Olympics. Many of you donate to Little League, Pee Wee Football and the city basketball league as well as many other youth activities. Most of the Special Olympians are not able to participate in these activities so this is the only sporting event in which they get to take part. It is for two days in Phoenix.
There are 25 eligible children in our district, but there are insufficient funds at this time. When you are contacted please remember that many of these kids never leave town except for this one time a year. Many families don't have the means or ability to take these kids away from home - some of them are difficult to transport, etc. So Special Olympics is looked forward to all year long. If you are not contacted and would like to make a donation please call Tammy Rogers at 289-9184 or Whitney Gilmore at 289-8988.
