On Saturday, December 1, we have been selected as the charity partner for the Hot Cider Hustle again this year and we need volunteers. We have partnered with All Community Events and are we are supplying volunteers for the event.

The 5K Hot Cider Hustle takes place during the morning on December 1 at White River State Park; volunteers help with registration, sign up, t-shirt distribution, course direction, hot cider distribution and more.

Easterseals Crossroads receives a donation from All Community Events for the first 30 volunteers we supply and we receive additional donations for each person beyond that. This is a great opportunity to have a great morning at White River State Park and it’s a great opportunity to give back to your community. Contact us today to volunteer for the Hot Cider Hustle on December 1!

If you prefer to participate in the walk/run, sign up now through September 19 for special pricing! You will receive a great fitness fleece hoodie and a finisher mug along with hot cider and caramel apples at the finish line! Sign up today for the Hot Cider Hustle.

And we always have on-going volunteer opportunities to work directly with children and/or adults in areas such as our weekly respite programs. For a meaningful group experience, we can create Days of Service activities for companies and organizations. We welcome individuals or groups to become involved with us for third-party events, such as walks/runs where we are recognized as a charity partner.

Acting for Easterseals Crossroads today allows us to remain the resource you may need on a future day! Your volunteer contribution supports our purpose to promote inclusion, independence and dignity for the many people whose lives are affected by disability or special needs.
