(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) At the intersection of Mitchell Ave. and Noyes Blvd. Saturday, volunteers from Bishop LeBlond gave their time to help raise money for the Special Olympics of Northwest Missouri.
It hasn't been an easy year for Special Olympics athletes and volunteers are hoping a boost from the community will go a long way.
"It has been really hard you know the pandemic has hit everyone in a different way," Kathy Grossman, Special Olympics Northwest Missouri said, "We haven't been able to have our normal fundraisers throughout the year like we did in the past."
The organization will hold its annual Polar Plunge in St. Joseph next Saturday, February 27 at Lake Contrary.
Volunteers raised a few hundred dollars during the fundraiser. Staff say donations can always be accepted, no matter the amount, at their website.
