We currently are seeking support in the following areas:
Friend in Deed:
This program provides social support to Easter Seals Midwest
clients. A volunteer is matched with a client who has similar
interests, and then together, they engage in various activities and
outings of their choosing, such as going to the movies, shopping,
eating out, cooking, etc. This opportunity requires a one year
commitment and is available year round. Read the Friend in Deed
program ensures our clients live in quality homes by allowing
organizations and individuals to "adopt" a home to make any
necessary improvements and/or donate any needed household items.
This opportunity is available year round. See how Peabody Energy and Conner Ash PC have recently helped Easter Seals
Midwest by Adopting a Home.
Easter Seals Midwest organizes
several major fundraising events each year, such as Walk
with Me (May), the Par-Tee Dinner Auction and
Tee-it-Up Golf Tournament (July) and the Festival
of Trees (Nov/Dec), none of which would be possible
without the help of volunteers. Tasks leading up to and during
these events vary. Easter Seals Midwest also hosts several
smaller family events and other miscellaneous events throughout the
year. These opportunities are situational and Easter Seals Midwest
will reach out to volunteers as needed.
Work in Our
We occasionally need clerical
support with accounting, fundraising and human resources tasks at
our business offices. These opportunities are perfect if your
schedule varies or if you want to make a few quick commitments to
help out. Easter Seals Midwest will reach out to this pool of
volunteer contacts as needed.
