Ingevity employees today presented a check totaling $4,125.67 to Easter Seals West Kentucky. This donation will help the Easter Seals organization provide services, education, outreach, and advocacy to people living with autism and other disabilities throughout western Kentucky.
Easter Seals focuses on three areas of critical need: identifying and serving young children at risk for developmental delays and disability; assisting a new generation of veterans with special needs and disabilities; and creating community-based services and family support for adults with disabilities.
Monies donated by Ingevity will assist with programs for adults and children such as:
- medical rehabilitation which promotes independence and quality of life;
- job training and employment which builds the skills needed to find and keep a great job;
- child care that provides a learning environment for children and peace of mind for parents; and
- adult day programs that anticipate the needs of adults with disabilities and older adults.
Hayley Coble, director of marketing and development, Easter Seals West Kentucky, stated, “We are grateful Ingevity supported our mission and our cause through this donation. Our organization works daily to improve the quality of life for those living with a disability. Because of donations like the one received from Ingevity, Easter Seals West Kentucky can continue to expand services for our clients.”
“Easter Seals West Kentucky is an outstanding service organization that provides the support and services needed by many special needs individuals,” stated Rusty Fondaw, safety, health and environmental manager, Ingevity. “I’m very thankful and proud of the employees here at the Ingevity plant in Wickliffe for supporting such a deserving cause. Without commitment from the community, this nonprofit organization wouldn’t be able to fulfill their mission.”
