We are very proud to help fuel the dreams of Special Olympic athletes in the New England area. One way that we do this is through our Fueling Dreams program. Since 1999, Irving has helped raise more than $2.8 million for Special Olympics state chapters through this exciting and rewarding program.
One day each year is designated as 'To Serve and Protect Day' where Special Olympics athletes, coaches and law enforcement officers work alongside Irving employees to pump gas, wash windows and greet customers at designated Irving locations while collecting donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a relay run that brings the Flame of Hope to the Opening Ceremony.
The 'To Serve and Protect Day' this year was held on Saturday, July 27th. As always, the event was successful in creating much excitement among customers and employees.
We also raise money for the Fueling Dreams program by selling commemorative car window clings for $1. Thanks to your generosity in 2013, we broke another record and raised nearly $375,000! We thank you for your support!
