EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: Please Cease Special Olympics Donations to Moose Charities
For the past nine years, you have generously sent donations in to Moose Charities to sponsor the annual national Special Olympics softball event. However, Moose leadership recently announced our desire to modify the way in which we support Special Olympics – shifting our support away from the national softball tournament, and focusing exclusively on increasing our volunteerism at local Special Olympics events in lodge communities across the fraternity. We believe that, by doing so, we will 1) increase Moose presence in multiple lodge communities; and, 2) provide more members with the opportunity to get personally involved, and to enjoy seeing the impact of their volunteerism in their own lodge communities. Attached is a list containing contact information for all local Special Olympics programs throughout North America. We encourage you to contact your local office and ask how your members can get involved in local events, such as the local Summer Games. Efforts made in your local Special Olympics programs in the 3rd and 4th quarters will still count towards your Heart of the Community efforts and should still be entered under the Special Olympics section of the report.
Lastly, for the past nine years, you were asked to give a minimum of $25 per quarter, or $100 total per fiscal year, for the annual Special Olympics softball event. We now ask that you please cease earmarking these donations for Special Olympics. Instead, we suggest that you take the same amount and apply it towards Mooseheart/Moosehaven each quarter. By doing this, we can ensure that our children at Mooseheart, and our seniors at Moosehaven, receive even more support than we have given in the past.
