Easter Seals Ontario is a registered charitable organization that helps children and youth with physical disabilities from all ethnic and religious backgrounds. Easter Seals assist families with the purchase of costly mobility equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, porch lifts and ramps, as well as communication devices, toileting aids and bathing equipment. Easter Seals also helps by providing summer camp opportunities at our two properties, Camp Merrywood (Perth, ON) and Camp Woodeden (London, ON). Easter Seals also offers post-secondary scholarships and provides access to information and resources, and public education and awareness.
Thanks to its generous donors, Easter Seals continues to offer programs that allow kids to experience freedom, independence and a sense of accomplishment. For families, Easter Seals is somewhere to turn for help when they need it.
Easter Seals helps kids BE KIDS.
