Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano’s five offices will be collecting donations in April for the Special Olympics of Pasco County. Special Olympics is a sports and training program for people with intellectual disabilities. Year-round training and competition are provided in 17 different sports. Participation is at no-cost for athletes. The slogan “Where Champions are Made,” sums up the purpose of this wonderful program!
“We are very excited to once again be selected as the Charity of the Month for April!” comments Joeyn Dearsman, Senior Manager/ Pasco. “Mike Fasano and his team have been big supporters of Special Olympics of Pasco for many years and we are grateful for everything they do for our athletes. With the help from our community during this campaign, we will be able to provide athletic training, equipment and uniforms for our athletes. We work with dedicated volunteers to ensure our athletes have everything they need to continue to be successful on and off the field.”
“Special Olympics of Pasco County provides incredible opportunities for individuals with a wide-range of disabilities to be a part of athletics that may not otherwise be available to them,” comments Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “The Pasco County branch of this excellent program has a long history of success in not only the state of Florida but at the national level as well. The opportunities provided to people with intellectual challenges have proven to help enrich the lives of the athletes in a great way. I encourage anyone in our community who would like to support the Special Olympics of Pasco to stop by one of our offices and make a donation!”
