Special Olympics Scarf Project – Update January 2013

Well, several deadlines for states to receive the scarves for their winter games have come and gone.

Only one state, Iowa, has met their goal.  Other states look to be on track to meet their numbers before their deadline, while others are struggling.

Some quick notes in particular:

* SO Alaska – deadline extended through 1 March 2013.

* SO Kentucky – deadline extended through 24 January 2013.  They reduced their required numbers to 300, and since they already have 277, they don’t need too much by 24 January.  If you have completed scarves, please mail items by 21 January to ensure that they receive the scarves before they leave for the Winter Games during the weekend of 24 January.

* SO New Jersey – deadline extended through 4 February 2013.

* SO Oklahoma – they’ve received enough for a small event, but are nowhere near the number they need for their games.  They will continue to collect scarves through December 2013, and use those for next year instead.

* SO Tennessee – deadline has passed, but if you have completed scarves for them, please mail them directly to the SO office.  If not, then please consider mailing them to SO Colorado, which has the same colours, and will surely help them meet their goal.

Here’s a summary of where we are today.

* 15 December – Tennessee – 101 of 200 received
* 23 December – Iowa – 800 of 800 received
* 24 January – Indiana – 438 of 800 received
* 13 January – Maryland – 35 of 400 received
* 14 January – Delaware – 39 of 120 received
* 18 January – Arkansas – 13 of 535 received
* 18 January – Kansas – 45 of 125 received
* 21 January – Texas – 290 of 3,000 received
* 24 January – Kentucky –  277 of 300 received
* 1 February – Ohio – 4 of 350 received
* 1 February – Washington – needs 1,000 scarves; no numbers reported yet;
* 4 February – New Jersey – 195 of 1,000 received
* 8 February – South Dakota – 114 of 800 received
* 14 February – Colorado – 35 of 800 received
* 15 February – Vermont – 20 of 300 received
* 1 March – Alaska – 250 of 750 received
* 1 March – Utah – 10-15 of 300 received (an estimate; they haven’t opened the package yet).
* 30 December – Oklahoma – 90 of 1,812 received

    • Hi Marsha,
      The states listed are those states that wanted to participate/continue the project.
      PA chose not to participate this year. Perhaps for the next year.

      Thanks.
