Olympia Moving & Storage is proud to be the official logistics supplier for Special Olympics Massachusetts and a proud supporter of Special Olympics Virginia.
Special Olympics provides year-round sports training, athletic competition and other health-related programming for athletes with intellectual disabilities. The power and joy of sport shifts the focus to what Special Olympics athletes can do, not what they can’t. Attention to disabilities fades away, and we see talents and abilities, and applaud them for all that they can do.
Olympia Moving & Storage contributes year-round to Special Olympics; including:
- In-kind donations of crews & trucks for events
- Corporate fundraising
- Logistics assistance for the Summer Games & Jolly Jaunt and Plane Pull
- Employee volunteerism
We like to involve our customers and stakeholders in the causes that are important to us.
- When you are given the final bill for your local move, you will be asked if you would like to add a $2 donation to Special Olympics. These donations will be matched by Olympia Moving & Storage.
- Visit this page (MA) or this page (VA) to make your own donation to Special Olympics today.
Thank you for your generosity.
