The Sheridan College Men’s & Women’s basketball teams participated in the local Easter Seals & Goodwill national fundraising competition to help awareness of disabilities. The fundraiser supports exceptional programs like autism services, pediatric therapy for children with disabilities, and workforce development for adults with and without disabilities. The athletes were paired with an individual and participated in a grocery-bagging competition.
Last year, Safeway stores in the mid-west region raised over $55,000 to help children and adults in the community. Safeway’s roughly 1,700 stores across the United States (operating under various brand names) will devote the month of April to raising money for Easter Seals in this coordinated company-wide effort.
