Calendar Through May 31, 2014
This week (April 6-13) is National Volunteer Week! Established in 1974 by Points of Light, National Volunteer Week is a time to recognize volunteers for their service and contributions and to inspire people to continue to take action in their communities. Special Olympics North Carolina could not host quality competitions throughout the year without the support of thousands of volunteers. Whether you coach a sport, help as a chaperone, drive athletes to and from events, serve on a games management or sport development team, volunteer for the day of an event or assist us in our office or warehouse, you are the reason SONC athletes are able to compete and succeed! To learn more about how to get involved with SONC, visit our Volunteer page.
