WILLISTON, VT - In true Olympic spirit, Vermonters went for the gold and raised over $3,000 for local athletes with intellectual disabilities.

Lenny's Shoe & Apparel held a month-long change roundup in June, and the stores and its customers collectively raised $3,186.08 for Special Olympics Vermont.

Lenny's district manager Bobbie Jo Roby presented that donation to Lisa DeNatale, President and CEO of Special Olympics Vermont on Wednesday, July 10 at Lenny's in Williston.

Customers chose to roundup the change from their purchases to donate to Special Olympics Vermont. Nine lucky donors who made gold medal donations of $5 won Lenny's gift cards ranging in value from $50 to $150.

“Supporting local organizations is something our staff and customers are passionate about,” said Bobbie Jo. “Vermont is a small state where we can all ban together and make a big difference.”
