We are selling out of the 2017 ornaments quickly! We are completely out of the Callaghan’s ornaments online but some are still available at our Goodwill Easterseals stores and vendors, and Coffee Cup, as well as ornaments from past years, can still be ordered on our website. You may want to call ahead to make sure the vendors have not run out. Thank you so much for your support of our Christmas on the Coast ornaments!
We are so proud of our students who work hard in the adult education classes every week! Many of them are brushing up on reading and math skills. They are taught in small class sizes by staff and volunteer instructors. One of the tutors, a Spring Hill College student, said, “I love seeing the students’ faces when the pronunciation of a word clicks in their heads. This program is just one of the many great opportunities at Goodwill Easterseals!”
Most parents expect they will hold their children’s hands as they grow. Sometimes, the parents need a hand to hold as well. Huntley is a 2 1/2 year old with Down Syndrome. When he was 2 months old, his mother Malea discovered Goodwill Easterseals’ Early Intervention program and the support their family needed.
With the help of Goodwill Easterseals, Huntley learned to eat with a spoon, sit up steadily, and other skills for his age. At the same time, his parents and 6 year old brother Haden have been taught ways to help Huntley participate in daily activities.
Huntley is on his way to a better preschool experience thanks to Goodwill Easterseals!
