Easterseals Southern California (ESSC) – which assists more than 10,000 people with disabilities each year – has teamed once again with Baker’s Drive-Thru Restaurants for its 29th annual Safe Halloween coupon book fundraising campaign in the Inland Empire.

Through the Safe Halloween coupon book fundraiser, Baker's Drive-Thru has raised more than $4 million for ESSC since 1989.  One hundred percent of the proceeds from sales of booklets support Easterseals services in the I.E. for children and adults with disabilities.

Running Monday, Sept. 25 through midnight on Halloween, the booklets are available at all 39 locations. For just $1, booklets feature 30 free and discounted coupons valued at $507 for food, fun, products and services from local companies such as Baker’s, Aquarium of the Pacific, CSUSB Athletics, Fiesta Village, Krispy Kreme, My Delight Cupcakery, Ontario Reign, Scandia Amusement Park and more.  

Said Mark Whitley, president & CEO of ESSC, “The commitment of Baker’s to the welfare of their community over the years is truly notable. To date, they have raised more than $4 million to support services for children and adults with disabilities in the Inland Empire, which has made a profound and life-changing difference.  We are grateful for their ongoing support.”
