2021 Speakeasy Hero Bannerflappers

Please Join Us On November 4th

Unless you have a time machine, visiting a real Speakeasy is something you won't be able to tick off your bucket list. Speakeasy: A Night of Spirits – an event that raises funds to support individuals of all ages who face physical, mental, emotional, and/or intellectual disabilities, centers around the 1920’s when flappers were queens and gangsters were a-plenty. You won’t want to miss this “Bee’s Knees” night!

Disabilities and the Pandemic

It comes as no surprise that 2020 will undoubtedly go down as one of the hardest years in history. The COVID-19 pandemic, with a lengthy list of domestic misfortunes, made the year exceptionally difficult for virtually every American. But, for children and adults with disabilities, there is no doubt; they have been unduly impacted by this crisis. Peruse this Study - Impact of CO-VID19 on People with Disabilities to find out more.
With support from our donors, Easterseals was able to march on, developing new and unique ways to deliver its services for its clients. Thank you. For 2022, not knowing what we will face, would you consider a monthly giving plan? Could $10 or $20 a month work? As Helen Keller maintained, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

Missing summer camps already? Don’t worry you can enjoy all the wonderful aspects of camp this fall at a retreat. So, sign up for a fall retreat and have fun with friends, campfires, adventure activities, crafts and more!
Gwenn manages fund development for the York region. She is proud to work for America’s largest nonprofit health care organization and knows that Easterseals focus on helping "kids BE KIDS" makes this the most important work she can be doing today.
The Child Development Center in State College kicked off our New School Year in September. Coming up in October we are looking forward to our annual Trick-or-Treating. Our kids dress up in costumes and local community organizations help to pass out treats.
Easterseals Western and Central Pennsylvania is excited to announce we are bringing events back to a community near you. See our line-up of activities. Questions? Contact our Development Department at development@eastersealswcpenna.org.

Hearing loss can affect every area of a person’s life, including physical health, mental health, career success, social life, personal relationships, and overall quality of life. Treatment can help!
