Cavender's stores host SOTX Boots and Hats Day in support of the Paper Torch Campaign

July 30, 2020 | Updated: July 30, 2020

It was really special to see SOTX staff members and local law enforcement across the state visit their local Cavender's stores for SOTX Boots and Hats Day 2020! We loved seeing all the LETR photos coming in and the paper torches hanging around the Cavender's checkout counters!

Every torch that is sold at Cavender's benefits Special Olympics Texas athletes in the pursuit to get them back to play. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far and we can't wait to see how much further we can go. The 2020 Paper Torch Campaign runs through August 6th at all Texas Cavender's stores.

I’ve been keeping up with some athletes online, it is good to still be able to interact with them virtually", said Senior Deputy Michelle Walter.
