GENESEE COUNTY — A little spare change can go a long way to help Michigan residents with disabilities.
The Kroger Co. of Michigan is asking shoppers to drop their spare change into coin boxes located at cash registers to benefit Easter Seals Michigan. The organization serves more than 9,000 Michigan children and adults with disabilities and special needs and their families. Easter Seals Michigan also supports veterans and military families.
The Kroger Easter Seals campaign will continue through March 28, with all 124 Michigan Kroger stores collecting donations. One hundred percent of contributions benefit Easter Seals Michigan.
“Easter Seals Michigan helps people with disabilities and special needs live healthier and more active lives within their own communities,” said Ken McClure, consumer communication manager, The Kroger Co. of Michigan. “Kroger welcomes the opportunity to team up with customers and associates to support this organization, which has helped improve the quality of life for people in our state for many years.”
For nearly a century, Easter Seals Michigan (ESM) has empowered extraordinary individuals to live more independent lives. Last year, ESM served 9,000 people from birth to older adults from its multiple service locations in Auburn Hills, Center Line, Royal Oak, Pontiac, Southfield, Waterford, Walled Lake, Flint and Grand Rapids.
Easter Seals offers programs and services that evolve to the needs of local communities, primarily focusing on rehabilitation and wellness related to behavioral health, autism, trauma and special needs. Their skilled case workers and medical staff work together to develop holistic programs designed to enrich the lives of the people they serve.
