Easterseals Rehabilitation Center

"It seems like the sky's the limit for my Ella, and I'm so grateful to Easterseals! Will you please make a generous gift today, so they can help other families?" - Tina Nuffer

When Ella was born with multiple disabilities and delays, the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center became a part of her life - and her mom's - right away. From learning to sit, crawl and smile to walking, hearing and speaking, Ella has achieved it all, with a hand from Easterseals. Now this happy nine-year-old is ready for third grade, something that seemed impossible just a few years ago. Ella's mom Tina asks you to make dreams like these come true for other local children and their families by giving to our Summer Campaign. Just follow the link to donate online, contact Laura at 812-573-1083 or, or mail a gift to Summer Campaign, Easterseals, 3701 Bellemeade, Evansville IN 47714. Thank you for helping to make the future bright for Tri-State kids like Ella!
