Easterseals Crossroads Hosts Community Day to Highlight Community Resources

Saturday, September 17, at MLK Center in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (September 12, 2022) – Easterseals Crossroads, a local nonprofit organization providing disability services, is hosting a Community Day Event, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and in partnership with JPMorgan Chase, at MLK Center on Saturday, September 17.

This free, family-friendly event takes place from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at MLK Center, located at 40 W. 40th Street in Indianapolis.

Easterseals Crossroads will provide free, on-site child development checkups; share information about employment services for individuals and families living with disability; and offer information about support services for veterans facing homelessness.

In addition, an exhibit hall of community partners will offer book giveaways, information on programs for adults and children, games, food and fun. Highlights include food box distribution courtesy of Gleaners Food Bank and Eskenazi Health and diaper distribution courtesy of Indiana Diaper Bank as well as a financial journey information session hosted by JPMorgan Chase. The first 150 people also receive free lunch.

“As a leading provider of services for people with disabilities in central Indiana, we realize not all people have equal access to what they need. Community Day events highlight resources available to people from a variety of partner organizations within the area,” said David Dreith, President/CEO of Easterseals Crossroads.

“Not everyone can easily access the things they need for their family – and may not even know what is available to them. Meeting people where they are, in their neighborhood, is essential,” said MLK Center Executive Director Allison Luthe.
