On Mondays, Gusto Pizza Co. allows a member of the non-profit community in Greater Des Moines to write about their organization. We'll post that on our blog on Monday morning, then broadcast that info on our social media sites and give away a $10 gift card per week for anyone who re-tweets the message or shares the link on their facebook wall. The drawing will take place on Friday at 11am. Today we showcase Easter Seals Iowa. If you would like to subit an entry for your organization, follow the guidelines here.
EASTER SEALS IOWA
Easter Seals Iowa serves more than 2,700 children and adults with disabilities from all of Iowa’s 99 counties annually. We do more than providing the direct support to the individual with the disability, it is supporting the family member, the employer, school and friends so everyone has equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in our communities.
Easter Seals Iowa is driven by its mission of “to provide exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities,” and all of its programs and services have evolved out of this mission.
We provide 15 different program lines from camping to helping a farmer with a disability continue to farm. While each service line looks different- the one thing that you will find consistent is that Easter Seals is about supporting persons to live that life that they desire. We don’t’ create dreams or the success … clients do that themselves: however, we do provide hope and support along the way.
