Local Groups Collecting Funds for Local Special Olympics Programming

Volunteers will have a visible presence at 16 United Family supermarket locations and at several intersections throughout the Panhandle area on Saturday, Sept. 16 to collect money for local Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) programming. A complete list of participating United Supermarkets and street intersections is listed below. Donations will be collected from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. at each location.

Those interested in making a donation at any of the participating United Family supermarket locations can give their contribution to a member of the UCrew volunteer team, who will be staffing a table marked with ‘Fuel the Flame’ signage.

In addition, The Knights of Columbus will be cooking outside of the United Supermarket on Bell Plaza and at the Amigos store in Hereford.  All proceeds from the cook-out will also be donated to SOTX.

Monies collected during the “Fuel the Flame” fundraiser will be used to provide SOTX programming for more than 600 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Amarillo and the surrounding Panhandle area. 

Ninety-two cents of every dollar raised goes directly toward putting on programs and services for participating athletes. For SOTX to provide one entire year’s worth of sports programming and training for each athlete, it costs approximately $150 per athlete per year.

For more information about this event, contact Annette Castellano (acastellano@sotx.org) at 806.788.1540.
