Local Giving Benefits Easter Seal Programs
Ferraro Foods, Rossland Golden City Lions Club and Trail Lions Club joined retailers across BC in March for the annual Paper Egg Campaign to raise funds for children and families who stay at Easter Seals Camp Winfield and Easter Seals House in Vancouver.
Customers of Ferraro Foods in both the Rossland and Trail stores donated $2,514.50, with a match from Ferraro Foods making the total amount raised $5,029 for Easter Seals BC and Yukon. The Lions Clubs were on location at the stores throughout March selling the Paper Eggs to customers.
The annual Easter Seals Paper Egg Campaign ran March 5th to April 1st. Every paper egg sold will help to fund transformative and life-changing programs and services for individuals living with disabilities.
Since 1952, Easter Seals BC & Yukon has offered programs and services to individuals with disabilities to help build their self-esteem, self-confidence and sense of independence. Whether helping someone improve physical mobility, house out-of-town guests who need a place to stay when coming to Vancouver for doctor’s appointments, or simply gain greater independence in everyday living, Easter Seals programs help people with disabilities address life’s challenges and achieve personal goals.
In 2018, Easter Seals celebrates one of their legacy programs with the 50th anniversary of their summer camp program
