Rotary and Easterseals Two Friends, Two Visions that Changed Our World
Paul Harris, founder of Rotary International, the world’s first service club organization - and Edgar Allen, founder of Easterseals, came to know one another because of a shared a passion for service and volunteerism.
Since the 1920s, Rotary clubs have worked with local Easterseals organizations as volunteers and event sponsors, and by offering program support through direct grants and gifts. [See Rotary-Easterseals Timeline: Page 1 and Page 2]
Today, Rotarians nationwide continue Allen’s dedication to children with disabilities through funding and underwriting of programs that support camping and recreation programs for children, such as Easterseals Camp Merry Heart here in New Jersey. To date, Rotary International has contributed over $5 million dollars to Easterseals programs nationwide.
