Getting Involved in the Special Olympics

How can we begin to teach our children how important it is to volunteer in their community?  Certainly, we can initiate this process by starting early and as their primary adult role models, begin by setting a good example for our children.  If your family is involved in volunteering in the community, then it will become second nature to your children.  You know that old saying, “lead by example”, well that is very true when it comes to young children.  If they see that you put a lot of value on assisting others, then they will too.  How can we get involved with the Special Olympic with our
