Supporting Easterseals



Skyline Financial Federal Credit Union is proudly supporting the Easterseals of Greater Waterbury and their upcoming Fundraiser on May 16th, 2024. They call it "Pints for a Purpose" and they're raising funds to support the programs they offer to countless individuals who are in need of the Easterseals!

Skyline Financial Federal Credit Union serves New Haven and Litchfield counties in Connecticut. Easterseals of Great Waterbury supports almost the same regions, which is why we thought it'd be a perfect fit to support this fundraiser. 

What is the Easterseals?

  • Easter Seals has been helping individuals with disabilities and their families live better lives for nearly 100 years. From child development centers to physical rehabilitation to job training, Easter Seals helps people with disabilities address life's challenges and achieve personal goals.
  • In 1907, Ohio-businessman Edgar Allen lost his son in a streetcar accident. The lack of adequate medical services available to save his son prompted Allen to sell his business and begin a fundraising campaign to build a hospital in his hometown of Elyria, Ohio. Through this new hospital, Allen was surprised to learn that children with disabilities were often hidden from public view. Inspired by this discovery, in 1919 Allen founded what became known as the National Society for Crippled Children, the first organization of its kind.
  • In the spring of 1934, the organization launched its first Easter "seals" campaign to raise money for its services. To show support, donors placed the seals on envelopes and letters. Cleveland Plain Dealer cartoonist J.H. Donahey designed the first seal. Donahey based the design on a concept of simplicity because those served by the charity asked "simply for the right to live a normal life."
  • The lily - a symbol of spring - was officially incorporated as Easter Seals' logo in 1952 for its association with resurrection and new life and has appeared on each seal since.
