Members of the South Dakota Central Chapter of Credit Unions recently gave a monetary donation to the Pierre Wildcats – a Special Olympics Team from Pierre, SD. Pictured are some of the members of the Chapter presenting the check to the team.
The Special Olympics was established in 1968 as a global organization that serves athletes with intellectual disabilities, working with volunteers and coaches each year. Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
The special activities give them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship.
Various monthly 50/50 raffles were held to raise the money. Members of the Central Chapter include: Dakotaland Federal Credit Union; Dakota Rail Line Federal Credit Union; HB Telco FCU; Huron Area Education FCU; M-O Federal Credit Union (all from Huron, SD) and Oahe Federal Credit Union (from Pierre, SD); along with the Pierre branch of Black Hills Federal Credit Union, which is an associate member.
