We're asking the community to help us overcome our current fundraising shortfall AND the shorter Telethon broadcast by giving online both in advance leading up to the show and during the Telethon. As a special incentive, starting Monday, July 13 and continuing ALL WEEK, UNTIL THE END OF THE BROADCAST (SUN., JULY 19), ALL TELETHON DONATIONS WILL BE MATCHED! This includes online gifts made 24 hours a day on our website!
The 43rd annual Easterseals Telethon, originally scheduled for April 5, has been postponed to SUNDAY, JULY 19. Many thanks to ABC 25 for their willingness to reschedule this important event!
The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center serves approximately 5,100 children and adults with disabilities from a 30-county area of Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. No one is turned away due to inability to pay for medical rehabilitation therapy, which is offered on a sliding fee scale. All local contributions to the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center – including all Telethon pledges – stay in the community, underwriting therapy sessions for individuals who cannot otherwise afford these life-changing services at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center. Financial support is needed year round. Donations can be made any time on our secure donation page; in person or by mail to Easterseals, 3701 Bellemeade Ave., Evansville, IN 47714; or by calling 812-479-1411.
