March is Easter Seals Month!
This March, we are celebrating Easter Seals Month and spreading awareness of what Easter Seals does for Nova Scotians living with disabilities!
Some of our fundraisers & services have been impacted by current events, please click here to get the latest updates.
During the month, our social media will have Did You Know? facts about Easter Seals Nova Scotia to promote what we do and how, together, we can help Nova Scotians living with disabilities become UNSTOPPABLE™!
On March 3, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development & Disability Inclusion, Carla Qualtrough, will visit our centre and have lunch at our onsite New Leaf Cafe to learn more about our work with youth with disabilities and supported employment and workplace training.
On March 5, Mayor Mike Savage will be proclaiming March as Easter Seals Month at Easter Seals Nova Scotia’s centre in Dartmouth. This is an exciting and wonderful step towards getting our cause, programs and services across the province.
From March 16 to April 12, our Paper Egg Campaign will run in stores throughout the province! Paper Eggs is one of our annual fundraising and awareness campaigns wherein customers are encouraged to purchase a Paper Egg for $2 and write their name on it. All funds raised go towards our many programs and services that support Nova Scotians living with disabilities.
As March ends, Bunnyland kicks off the new month with an event made for everyone! From April 1 to 11, the Easter Bunny will be at Mic Mac Mall to take pictures with families, friends or colleagues. Photo prints start at $7 to $30 and all proceeds go towards supporting Easter Seals Nova Scotia’s programs and services.
This Easter Seals Month, we hope to highlight the importance of accessibility for everyone and how people, businesses, facilities and such are moving towards the increased mobility, independence and inclusion of Nova Scotians living with disabilities.
