Make It a Home

An auxiliary to benefit Easterseals Midwest
Make It a Home Logo

Did you know that most of the people Easterseals Midwest supports through Community Living survive on just $24 a day? That's $735 per month. This has to cover the cost of housing, food, utilities, and more. For these individuals, common household necessities often become luxuries they cannot afford.

You can help make a house a home by donating new or used household furniture and other goods and help bring comfort and relief to people in need. Make it a Home is dedicated to providing necessities to support independent living for individuals with developmental disabilities. Your gift today can make a difference in someone's life for years to come. We are grateful for your support!
