Easter Seals is marking May 31 as World No Tobacco Day by launching a national smoking cessation program to help veterans, people with disabilities and caregivers live healthier, tobacco-free lives. Funding for the new program is supported by a $400,000 grant from the CVS Health Foundation.
Safeway and the Safeway Foundation on Friday announced they raised and donated more than $10.8 million in April for Easter Seals, Special Olympics and a range of other charities that support people with disabilities.
Easter Seals has elected CVS Caremark SVP corporate communications and community relations Eileen Howard Boone to its international board of directors on Monday during its annual convention in Washington, D.C.
CVS Caremark, through its All Kids Can program, has partnered with Easter Seals over the past six years to support children at risk of autism, developmental delays or disabilities. CVS Caremark is continuing its support by investing in Easter Seals' Make the First Five Count initiative to help assure children receive critical early intervention services.
Safeway on Friday announced the start of its companywide fundraising campaign for Easter Seals, Special Olympics, Rebuilding Together and a range of job training programs that help people with disabilities live fuller lives.
