For Immediate Release

Thank you for making 2017 so memorable

January 1, 2018

THANK YOU for making 2017 an incredible year at Easterseals. There were ups and downs and uncertainty across the nation, but you stood up for people with disabilities, people facing disadvantages, and veterans. Your overwhelming support and generosity did not go unnoticed. In a time when we needed you, you were there. Thank you!

This year, with your support, we served more than 5,500 individuals. This means that more than 5,500 individuals made important progress toward breaking down barriers to employment! As a result of your support, more than 625 of these individuals achieved employment, and with an average hourly wage of $10.17. That makes an anticipated total of more than $9MM in annual earnings! WOW!
