Watch for Easterseals Iowa Camp Sunnyside on the road and parked in unexpected places. Fareway donated a wrap on a 53-foot refrigerated trailer to promote the mission of Easterseals Iowa and Camp Sunnyside. The truck travels regularly in Fareway’s five-state region, including Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota. The wrap features clients enjoying all Easterseals Iowa Camp Sunnyside has to offer.
Easterseals Iowa supports individuals with disabilities to have equal opportunities and live with independence in their Iowa communities, serving more than 3,000 individuals and families each year.
Fareway is a long-time supporter of Easterseals Iowa. From donations to support capital projects and operations, hosting medical equipment and assistive technology drives in their stores, providing cookouts for clients at donors at Camp Sunnyside, and volunteering at Camp Sunnyside—Fareway provides an exemplary model for giving back and generously supports Iowans with disabilities. Fareway President and CEO Reynolds W. Cramer and his wife Sheila served as the 2017 Sunnyside Regatta Admirals, raising dollars year-round to support the mission and for the event. Paddleboat racers from Fareway took home the first-place trophy—the Regatta Cup—in 2016 and 2017.
President/CEO of Easterseals Iowa Sherri Nielsen says, “We are so grateful for Fareway’s partnership. Fareway’s support assists us in delivering our mission twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, in Iowa’s communities supporting persons with disability to live their best lives. This wonderful gift allows Easterseals Iowa to remind the community that we are here to serve.”
“We are proud to support the mission of Easterseals Iowa,” said Reynolds W. Cramer, Fareway President and CEO. “Their commitment to all people with disabilities or special needs, and their families, has made a tremendous impact for more than 90 years.”
