Easter Seals wins Inglis Award for Continuing Excellence
Easter Seals Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore is a recipient of a 2013 Inglis Award for Continuing Excellence. The Inglis awards program honors the outstanding performance of not-for-profit organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region that enhance the quality of life for people with physical disabilities, and by doing so, support the Inglis mission of enabling people with disabilities - and those who care for them - to achieve their goals and live life to the fullest.
Easter Seals of Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore is one of five organizations winning a $10,000 award. Award winners were honored at a ceremony at Inglis House in Philadelphia, Pa.
“In making the awards, we give priority to organizations using innovative strategies and approaches that can be replicated,” says Suzanne Rotondo, member of the Inglis board of directors and chair of the 16-member awards committee.
“Easter Seals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore is honored to be recognized for our work increasing independence and opportunities for people with disabilities,” said Easter Seals Board Chair Cynthia Morgan. “We have been unwavering in our commitment to the mission to fully integrate people in their communities for over 60 years. Inglis Award funds will immediately be put to use furthering our Community Outreach Program, providing information and referral, assistive technology, respite services, and education to people of all ages and abilities throughout Delaware.”
