How does Easter Seals Hawaii benefit from the Combined Federal Campaign?




CFC_1Red_RGBThe Combined Federal Campaign promotes and supports philanthropy through a program that encourages all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. It is a large, annual workplace charity campaign that raises millions of dollars each year.

The Hawaii-Pacific Area Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) benefits charities in the State of Hawaii, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa. Charities in this geographic area will receive the pledged money in 2014.



Easter Seals Hawaii (ESH) is one of the approved charities for the CFC and relies on your pledge to sustain the organization and continue providing services for children, youth and adults with disabilities or special needs. Many of our programs provide those same services for military families and federal employees as well. Here is a testimony from a military wife whose son with autism was a participant at our ESH Kailua Early Intervention Program.

Around nine months Jeremiah stopped bearing weight on his legs and stopped babbling. Due to his lack of progression, the pediatrician referred our family to Easter Seals Hawaii. We have learned an appreciation for the team approach to finding solutions to our family needs. ESH provided many ideas, suggestions and hands-on solutions that helped Jeremiah work through autism. We have also learned that it’s okay to accept help and ask questions. ESH brought Jeremiah a new level of exposure to the world. By teaching him to walk, improving his ability to feed himself and be more emotionally and verbally expressive, Jeremiah can now connect with his family and is not trapped within himself. Our family would absolutely recommend Easter Seals to other families, not only for the services that they provide but the caring and thoughtful way they deliver those services. The ESH Kailua EI team consistently demonstrates genuine interest in the progress of our son. ESH is a blessing to our family. – Jeremiah’s mother, Ebonie

Every family that walks through our doors has a story. Help us support the families and individuals that we serve by designating Easter Seals Hawaii for the Combined Federal Campaign, which runs from Sept. 15th to Oct. 31st. Our future is in your hands.
