Volunteers are needed to help with the St. Louis Metro Special Olympics Area Basketball Tournament being held Sunday, Jan. 28, in Union and Washington schools.

Volunteers play an enormously important role in the success of this event. There are a wide variety of opportunities available including scorekeepers, awards assistants, volunteer registration, and much more.

Most volunteer shifts include a minimum three-hour commitment, and each volunteer receives a complimentary T-shirt along with a very rewarding experience.

For questions regarding volunteer opportunities at the 2018 STLM Area Basketball Tournament, people should contact Amber Young, program manager, at 314-961-7755 or young@somo.org.
