Staples in Williams Lake currently has 30 local businesses around town who have donated prizes for gift baskets for Special Olympics.
Each donation is an entry to the prizes, but the real prize is to help support members of the community and in B.C. to be part of the Special Olympics.
Share a Dream is one of Staples’ main fundraisers other than the Back to School Supply Drive.
Each year a higher goal is set, and community involvement is greatly needed once again this year.
Donations are being accepted until May 25.
So far $900 has been raised and Staples hopes beat its goal of $2,500.
A table will be set up in Staples on Friday May 23, from 12 to 4 p.m., with previous or current Special Olympians on hand to accept donations.
It’s a great cause with grand prizes for the winning.
Joy Nixon, 29, normally competes in swimming and bowling but is not attending this year, however, she encourages people to donate to the cause.
