Recently, The Tatnall School presented Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore with a check following their fundraising efforts through their “Hop-N-ing” program to raise funds to benefit local people with disabilities. This year, Easterseals and The Tatnall School celebrated their 18-year partnership of spreading ability awareness to early childhood students. The students raised money to support Easterseals services for local families based on the number of times they hopped up and down, with contributors pledging money per hop. Since its inception in 2000, the “Hop-N-ing” event at The Tatnall School has raised over $38,000 for Easterseals.
