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

tical Easter Seals partner for more than a decade. The CVS Caremark All Kids Can Program represents Corporate Social Responsibility at its best," said James E. Williams, Jr., president and chief executive officer, Easter Seals. "We applaud CVS Caremark for its commitment to children with disabilities and remain grateful for the impact we are able to make in the lives of these children through CVS Caremark's support."

Critical Need for Autism Services

Over the last 20 years, Easter Seals has seen a dramatic increase in the number of children and adults with autism the organization serves. Today, as many as one in every 150 children is diagnosed with autism* -- that's a new diagnosis every 20 minutes -- making autism more prevalent than Down syndrome, childhood diabetes, and childhood cancer combined.

While autism is a baffling, lifelong disability, it is treatable. Every family living with a person who has autism faces unique challenges. Early detection and intervention are the essential first steps.

"There is an urgent need for increased funding and services," adds Williams. "We want to help change all of this and make a difference for families living with autism today."

"CVS Caremark is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of children with disabilities through the All Kids Can Program," said Eileen Howard Dunn, senior vice president, Corporate Communications and Community Relations, CVS Caremark. "We are proud to support Easter Seals in advancing outcomes-based treatments and interventions for children with autism, and by encouraging our associates to volunteer and make a difference in the communities where we live and work."
