'Tis the Season
It's that time of year again...here are some ways you can help!

As you can imagine with the COVID-19 Pandemic, Easter Seals, like everyone else, has found alternative ways to serve our clients, especially since many are medically fragile. As such, many of our programs since early March 2020 have been through tele-health/virtual services. In addition, we were honored to be on the receiving end of Houston and Montgomery / Harris Counties’ Emergency relief funds and have continued providing direct assistance to thousands for rental/utility and emergency assistance. As a result, we know first-hand that the need continues to be greater than ever but also want to ensure we keep our families, staff and supporters safe. To this end, we are going to continue in holding our holiday family adoption but are amending it, as we did in 2020, so that families can have somewhat of a holiday but that no one is unnecessarily exposed.

Last year we raised over $25,000 in funds and goods. Thanks to the community, we were able to adopt more than 65 families for the holidays. I am sure we will far exceed that this year. THIS year we would love you to participate on any level or just to spread the word!

  • Help us Adopt Our Families in Need: We are asking for three main donations, easy to mail if need be, but nonetheless as effective and helpful:
    • HEB gift cards. Large to small denominations.
    • Walmart gift cards. Large to small denominations.
    • Host a Holiday Drive for small things easily packaged or transported (socks, undies, pj’s)

  • Shop GoodShop: You probably need to shop for the holidays anyway...why not use GoodShop? Choose Easter Seals Greater Houston as your charity and we will receive a portion of the proceeds from your purchase! Check it out.
  • Donate your end-of-life electronics to CompuCycle to support Easter Seals Greater Houston. Learn more.

** Be assured that after this process is over, you will receive personalized thank you notes from the beneficiaries and be featured in listings in our newsletter and website as contributors**
