Memories From Long Ago Prompt Bequest to Easterseals
It's been about 60 years, but Mr. Kimbler can remember being a boy at Easterseals.
He recalls seeing other people learning to walk while he received speech therapy. Though his memories are vague, he knows Easterseals was "the highlight of my day."
He also knows how much it meant to his parents that their son could get the support he needed. Mr. Kimbler's mother even began volunteering for Easterseals, reaching out to businesses for donations.
Over the years, Mr. Kimbler regularly made cash gifts to Easterseals. Recently he left a gift in his will to benefit Easterseals and the families we serve."I decided that I've got a little set aside, so I could give a portion to Easterseals," he says. "Hopefully others will benefit and have a place to go—just as I did."
