    The Cash Drop is a fundraiser similar to Charity Newsies in which volunteers are at various intersections around Columbus collecting donations for Columbus Schools Special Olympics. This is year it is being held on Saturday, September 28th. The intersections are generally manned for 4 hours and volunteers are welcome to help the entire time or for 2 hours. Currently this is our largest fundraiser of the year and the one we need the largest number of volunteers for. Please keep in mind, this event does involve going onto the roadway while traffic is stopped to collect donations; all volunteers must be 18 or older. 100% of the money raised during this event goes back into the program for our athletes.
