Special Olympics Arkansas is a non-profit organization providing approximately 15,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to excel. The direction of the program flows through numerous volunteers. Arkansas is divided into 17 areas, each headed by a volunteer Area Director and various volunteers serving on team management committees. The Area Directors support all the local events in their area. The success of Special Olympics Arkansas has been made possible by the love and dedication of many volunteers who know that individuals with intellectual disabilities have important contributions to make to society. But the need is still great.
In the United States alone, only 33 percent of the individuals with intellectual disabilities who need the program are being reached. Help make Special Olympics a growing program. No matter how you choose to help, your efforts will have an impact on the athletes. Any time or talent you and your family contribute will be appreciated. Financial support is always needed and your contribution will be tax-deductible to the extent of the law. We hope that you will become an active part in helping special people grow and excel.
