Easter Seals Receives $1 Million Donation From CVS Caremark Charitable Trust to Enhance Autism Services for Children
Date:4/10/2008

Third Year Grant of $350K will Target Easter Seals Affiliates Nationwide

CHICAGO, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- As the nation focuses on the emerging challenges of people living with autism during April's Autism Awareness Month, Easter Seals today announced it has received $350,000 in grants this month from the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, bringing the total donation from the Trust to $1 million to support Easter Seals autism services nationwide. These grants are part of CVS Caremark's signature program, CVS Caremark All Kids Can(TM), a five-year, $25 million commitment to support children with disabilities.

Easter Seals was selected as a CVS Caremark All Kids Can national partner when the Program was introduced in early 2006. CVS Caremark and its private foundation have since contributed more than $4 million to Easter Seals, including more than $1 million in CVS Caremark All Kids Can Fund gifts to support Easter Seals autism services, $1.5 million in Easter Seals Walk With Me sponsorships, $1 million in Walk With Me pledges from CVS Caremark employee teams, and a $500,000 commitment to Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago's Therapeutic Day School and Center for Autism Research, scheduled to open this fall. Additionally, some 4,000 CVS Caremark employees volunteered at Easter Seals fundraisers and services in 2006 and again in 2007.

The 2008 CVS Caremark All Kids Can Fund recipients include Easter Seals affiliates in Columbus, Dallas, South Florida, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Topeka and Westchester County. Monies will be used to expand and sustain critical local programs and services that create opportunities for children with autism to learn, play and succeed. Children with autism up to age 18, and their families, will benefit from feeding programs, specialized summer camps, weekend respite experiences, inclusive childcare, therapeutic and medical rehabilitation services and more.
