On August 27, 2018, Special Olympics Creston held their annual Registration BBQ for new and returning athletes at Centennial Park.

Next up is our annual bottle drive, which is Special Olympics Creston’s main source of funding. This years bottle drive is set for September 8th, 2018. Thanks to Save On Foods for generously donating bags for us to use in the collection of our bottles. Along with these bags, athletes, staff and executive members printed, rolled and delivered 2349 flyers to 17 different areas in Creston. Thank you to Cresteramics for all your hard work and support. Thank you so much!

If you haven’t received a flyer at your door by Saturday, September 8th, but would like to donate, please call 250-402-3008. Special Olympics also has an account set up at Columbia Bottle Recycling where you can donate your sorted bottles and cans anytime throughout the year. Our bottle drive will be starting at 8:00 am, collecting bottles and cans until 1:30 pm. Funds raised help Special Olympics Creston offer programs to our more than 80 registered local athletes.

Our volunteers work hard all year, especially on bottle drive day. they do so because they believe in the organization. Anyone who participates in our programs, benefits. Thank you to all who help make this one of the greatest communities to live in.
