SHOP `N SAVE has been a sponsor and supporter of Special Olympics Illinois and the Law Enforcement Torch Run for nearly 14 years. The company and its employees are truly dedicated to our athletes, families and mission. They not only provide countless volunteer hours and in-kind support but nearly $1 million has been raised through this partnership!
Each year, SHOP `N SAVE hosts our LETR in two annual fundraising events – SHOP `N Save T-shirt Days and Cop on Top events. During these events, officers staff Illinois SHOP `N SAVE locations collecting donations and selling merchandise to benefit our athletes. In addition, SHOP `N SAVE employees host two annual fundraising events including an employee trivia night which was held on June 13 and a Round Up for Special Olympics promotion scheduled for Nov. 4 – Dec. 8.
On Aug. 14, nearly 50 Special Olympics Illinois athletes participated in an on-field clinic with the St. Louis Cardinals thanks to the efforts of SHOP `N SAVE and Coca Cola. This baseball clinic aimed to help SOILL athletes improve their individual skills, encourage team participation and teach the fundamentals of the game including batting, catching and running the bases. The athletes also learned about the importance of exercise and eating a balanced, healthy diet.
