GETTING MORE INVOLVED
Are you interested in joining a voluntary organization that directly benefits Easterseals Crossroads? Check out these two great options!
The Crossroads Guild was organized in 1955 to partner with Easterseals Crossroads to help the children served reach their full potential, and to enrich and make a difference in their lives with compassion and respect for differences in abilities through volunteer service, staff support, promotion of Crossroads’ values and services, the education and socialization of Guild members, and fundraising. Meetings take place on the third Tuesday of every month at Easterseals Crossroads or a point of interest that is determined annual. Often these meetings are held in conjunction with an interesting topic that may include a trip to another location and/or a speaker, along with a luncheon. The Crossroads Guild hosts an annual Family Fun Day, creates crafts to sell as a fundraiser at the Christmas Gift & Hobby Show, and volunteers at CampAbility, a summer day-camp for children at Easter Seals Crossroads. Please contact us for more information about the Guild, who invite you to have a heart, lend a hand, help a child!
