Easter Seals Rhode Island Has Been Granted $3,000 From Shriners of RI Charities Trust
Wakefield, RI – Easter Seals Rhode Island has been awarded $3,000 from Shriners of RI Charities Trust to purchase a commercial grade, steam-only dishwasher to sanitize all washable, therapeutic equipment at our facility in Wakefield.
This grant will increase the cleanliness of both our Outpatient and Early Intervention programs, helping us to provide the most optimal environment for the children and young adults we serve.
One of the major benefits of a steam dishwasher are many toys and pieces of equipment can be effectively cleaned at once, and steam is an appropriate cleaning agent for the needs of all children. The steam dishwasher would be used daily to keep our toys at peak sanitary condition and ensure that our therapists time remain available to meet with clients.
Easter Seals Rhode Island provides exceptional services to ensure that all children and young adults with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. Last year, Easter Seals Rhode Island served over 500 clients through Early Intervention services and the Outpatient program in the state of RI.
