For more than 75 years, Easter Seals Southeast WI has been offering help and hope to children and adults living with disabilities, and to the families who love them. Through therapy, training, education and support services, Easter Seals creates life-changing solutions so that people with disabilities can live, learn, work and play.
Easter Seals is celebrating our 80th Anniversary. We are not taking a backward look at our history, but setting a course for the future. We are embarking on a capital campaign to improve our workforce training services while creating new resources to make our organization more self-sufficient. Easter Seals is looking to invest $1 million in a new commercial catering and training kitchen along with a new technology center to connect individuals with disabilities to jobs. The revenue from the commercial kitchen and its rental will generate new revenue for Easter Seals and allow small businesses in the hospitality industry a new facility in Waukesha. The facility upgrades will increase our training capacity, be fully accessible to individuals with physical disablities helping more individuals overcome barriers to work. The commercial kitchen will be state of the art and a unique training venue for Waukesha County. To date over $600,000 has been raised!
We are fortunate to have an opporunity to match grant every donation made to our 80th Jubilee Campaign up to $100,000 through December 31 to out us over the top and start the construction in early 2014! www.easterseals.com/wi-se/get-involved/events/celebrating-80-years.html
