Share The Joy Day will be
held Saturday, December 1 from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. This
annual event has been held for over 20 years in Henry County.
Volunteers, parents, and Henry Special Olympics Parks and
Recreation Athletes stand at major intersections throughout
Hampton, McDonough, Locust Grove, and Stockbridge and hold
collection buckets and signs to collect money for local
programs. The money is used to buy uniforms, take the athletes
to State Games competitions, and for training.
If you are
unable to come and help or give on Saturday, you can still make
a tax-deductible donation to: HCPR Special Olympics, 10
Cleveland Street, Locust Grove, GA 30248 and put Share the Joy
for the memo line. Look for them around the community Saturday.
Rain or Shine, they will be there. There will be two shifts at
each location; 9 -12 and 12 - 2:30. If you or your organization
would like to volunteer, contact Parks and Recreation at
