For 100 years Easterseals has been the indispensable resource for people and families challenged by disabilities.

Easterseals Western and Central PA continues to monitor the coronavirus situation. Our priority is the safety, well-being and health of our many clients, families and associates. We are responsible to the communities we serve. We will be collaborating with senior leadership, our Board of Directors and state/local/federal governments to be prepared to respond to any action needed. Please check back for any updates.
This past year, Easterseals had to cancel a number of its fundraising events due to the CoVID pandemic and governmental restrictions. In an effort to recoup some of the funding we lost due to those cancellations, Easterseals reached out to our Board of Directors and requested their assistance. We are excited to share that in honor of #GivingTuesday our Easterseals Board of Directors offered to MATCH up to $5,000 on every donation we receive for #GivingTuesday on December 1. We hope you will donate to our ongoing efforts to be the #1 indispensable source for those with disabilities. Remember! The Board of Directors Match means that your donation will have DOUBLE the impact for children and seniors with disabilities and veteran families that we service throughout Western and Central PA.
