Special Olympics Texas Faces Financial Hardship Due to Hurricane Harvey

Special Olympics Texas has kicked off the #SOTXSTRONG fundraising and awareness campaign to bring attention to the financial difficulties the non-profit is facing following Hurricane Harvey’s landfall. The organization faces a budgetary shortfall of hudnreds of thousands of dollars. Because of damage to venues, several fundraisers have been canceled; some businesses have withdrawn sponsorship dollars and redirected those funds to hurricane relief; and other event participants have requested that donations be returned because they face hardships of their own.

We’re trying to raise $100,000 in 30 days, and would like to raise even more if possible.
