Knights of Columbus give $4.5K to Special Olympics
LAKE WYLIE The All Saints Council No. 14475 of the Knights of Columbus recently presented a check to the Clover Area Special Olympics for more than $4,500.
The money was raised by the Knight’s annual Operation Hope collection drive, held several weeks outside of local merchants including Food Lion and Bi-Lo supermarkets in Lake Wylie and Clover, Lake Wylie Walmart, Bagel Boat, Lake Wylie Jersey Mike’s and Lake Wylie Waffle House.
“The money raised by the Knights have allowed us to continue the expansion of our ‘Unified Program’ events in both Clover High School and Clover Middle School, and help significantly with the high costs of transporting our athletes to and from events, as well as to purchase uniforms and equipment,” said Patti Myers, special education teacher in Clover schools and coordinator for the Clover Area Special Olympics.
