PHCOEM is a proud sponsor of the Special Olympics / Massachusetts
Back in 1994, PHCOEM was supporting a wide variety of community causes. A suggestion was made by one of our members that we should focus more attention on helping people. And thus, we began our relationship with the Massachusetts Special Olympics. The Special Olympics gives us an opportunity to help out year round and it provides our club with both volunteer and fund-raising event opportunities. Plus, we get to experience the results of our efforts immediately in the infectious smiles and warm hugs from the athletes.
Our support for SO has grown every year as our club has grown. What at first seemed to be the daunting task of serving lunch once or twice a year back in 1994 has become an expected event several times a year. We were first recognized by the SO organization in 1996 with a plaque at St John’s prep in Danvers. We have since been named volunteer group of the year (1999), and inducted to the SO Hall Of Fame (2002).
