April 21, 2018 marks the start of a four-week fundraiser in support of Special Olympics at Staples stores across Canada.
The Share a Dream campaign raises funds to help deliver world-class sport programs to people with intellectual disabilities in communities throughout Canada.
A long-standing national partner of Special Olympics Canada, Staples has been helping the national charity spread its message of acceptance and inclusion throughout communities big and small for 22 years.
From April 21 to May 21, 2018 all in-store donations received at the Sault Ste. Marie Staples location will stay local in support of the Special Olympics Ontario 2019 Provincial Winter Games being hosted here in Sault Ste. Marie, January 31 – February 3, 2019.
“The local support we receive in spreading the message of inclusion continues to grow. In 2019 we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Special Olympics movement coming to Canada, right here in our city, surrounded by all of its natural beauty, historically known for being a great place to meet. As Games Manager, I look forward to welcoming the athletes of Special Olympics to our city as we celebrate their abilities, surrounded by their friends, families and supporters. In winter 2019, the Stars meet in Sault Ste. Marie.” Cst. Shaun Beaulieu, Sault Ste. Marie Police Service.
