We Support: Easter Seals Original Duck Race
The Easter Seals Original Duck Race in conjunction with Franklin’s Applefest will be held on Sunday, October 5th @ 2:00PM at the fountain in Fountain Park. Prizes will be awarded!
The Duck Race is Easter Seals – Franklin Division’s largest fundraiser. Net proceeds from the Duck Race are applied to programs and services that provide children and adults with disabilities the skills, tools, and support they need to participate more fully within their families and communities.
Easter Seals Western and Central Pennsylvania has been one of our community’s oldest and most respected non-profit organizations:
* Each year, more than 20,500 infants, children and adults with disabilities and their families receive Easter Seals services in 47 counties throughout Western Pennsylvania.
* $.98 of every dollar raised locally by Easter Seals remains right here in Western and Central Pennsylvania.
Easter Seals is unique from other health and human services providers. Easter Seals’ greatest strength comes from the people who are Easter Seals. Relationships between therapists and clients, between teachers and preschoolers, between staff and parents and between volunteers and staff. Helping children and adults with disabilities gain greater independence involves whole individuals, whole families, and support systems.
