We need YOUR help! We need your help to continue our exceptional services that impact the lives of families in your community. The full costs of pediatric therapy services are rarely covered by program fees and contracts. For each child served in Salisbury, Easter Seals must raise over $400 in contributions to subsidize the reimbursement shortfall. The same can be said for each camper that attends Camp Fairlee. The cost of an accessible camp is higher due to the extra staff that needs to be hired. But because Easter Seals Camp Fairlee does not wish any family to be turned away due to cost, in any given year, Easter Seals subsidizes each camp participant by an average of $500. Your contributions can help us continue to provide services on the Eastern Shore.
