On Veteran's Day members of the Special Olympics PA - Area M Athlete Leadership Team helped serve breakfast to our Nation's Heroes at Applebee's. It was a great morning! Three hundred Veterans were treated to a free breakfast courtesy of Applebee's. Our Athletes had the opportunity to interact and give thanks to the Veterans while helping to clear tables so that no one had to wait for their breakfast. Area M’s Athlete Leadership Team has participated in this wonderful event for multiple years and have already been asked to return next year. In fact, at the end of the event they were told where the employment applications were! Those athletes that attended were thankful to have this opportunity to say “Thank You” to our Veterans and to give back to a community that gives so much to them!
