Denver Pyle recently made two donations locally as a result of funds raised from the Uncle Jesse’s Fishing Tournament.

One donation, made to the Detroit Independent School District Special Olympics team, will help the team make it to state next week in Bryan, Texas as well as aid the classroom with future Special Olympic tournaments and purchase of new uniforms.

A second donation was also made to the Red River Valley Down Syndrome Society. The donation made from Denver Pyle was used to purchase some new enrichment programs and some new additions to their outdoor playground.
