Special Olympics Rhode Island


Through a variety of events and activities, the Credit Unions of Rhode Island Social Responsibility Committee provides a vehicle through which the credit unions can combine resources to address the needs of more than 2,800 athletes who participate in Special Olympics Rhode Island. 

Over the past twenty years, Credit Unions of Rhode Island have sponsored a variety of successful fundraising events including annual golf and bowling tournaments for Special Olympics Rhode Island. In addition, the credit unions send a large contingent to the Special Olympics RI Summer Games, held at the University of Rhode Island.  At the event, credit union volunteers help to organize athletes that are competing in track events. The volunteers always remark that they feel it was a privilege to participate in the event.
