What ODAC SAAC Programs Are Doing in 2014-15...

Hollins University Raises Funds for Trust House 

Hollins University Volunteers at Blacksburg Color Me Rad Race and Raises Money for Special Olympics  

Roanoke College's SAAC: Organized a toy drive for Roanoke's Rescue Mission and donated more than 20 gifts for teenagers and children. 

Bridgewater College SAAC: The Bridgewater College SAAC program hosted a Special Olympics Basketball Pizza party in Januray. Special Olympians and their families were invited to attend the Women's and Men's basketball games at 2pm and 4:30pm. Between the two games, SAAC hosted a pizza party with the Special Olympians and BC SAAC representatives helped serve the families and interacted with them.

*A special story BC wanted to share:One of the Special Olympians had been going through a hard time in his life. One of his caregivers was admitted into a nursing home and was not in good health. He did not want to do anything other than stay by her side. On top of that, one of his good friends from Special Olympics had passed away recently. When they asked him if he wanted to come be part of the pizza party and watch Bridgewater Basketball he was so excited and wanted to attend. His story was so special, so they presented him with a Nininger Nut t-shirt...made his day.
