The Pony Express Riders of Iowa host fundraisers in their home Iowa county throughout the year, and the money raised is used to benefit Easter Seals Iowa. Over its 45 year history, Pony Express Riders have raised more than $9 million for Easter Seals Iowa! We thank this incredible group for their longstanding commitment to our organization.
Variety-The Children’s Charity of Iowa is a long-time supporter of Easter Seals Iowa. In the last five years alone, Variety has donated more than $125,000 to ensure that Easter Seals can support children with disabilities to have full and happy lives. Improvements made to Camp Sunnyside because of Variety's support include an accessible mat for our playground and a sensory room for children living with autism. Variety also contributed to our Cabins for Campers capital campaign.
Through funding and collaboration, the Iowa Program for Assistive Technology, based out of the University of Iowa, has provided information, referral, and assistive technology for Iowans with disabilities through the Assistive Technology Center.
The Easter Seals Rural Solutions program works collaboratively with Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services to assist farmers to remain gainfully employed, after acquiring a disability.
Through a partnership with Central Iowa Shelter and Services, we are meeting individuals with disabilities who are currently homeless. We assist individuals into short- and long-term support for health and wellness.
