Bend Gate Elementary Raises $2,000 for Easter Seals

BEND GATE ELEMENTARYOWENSBORO, Ky. (4/4/14) – Today at noon all students and staff at Bend Gate Elementary School will participate in a school wide bunny hop to celebrate raising more than $2,000 to help fund therapy services for local children and adults through Easter Seals.

Songbird Entertainment will be providing the disc jockey services.

From Feb. 28 through March 26, students and staff raised money for Easter Seals by participating in a Hop-A-Thon, buying hang tags, and participating in jean days. The original goal set for students and staff was $700. The actual amount of money raised was $2001.03.

One student who raised the most money from each grade level will be able to help present a check to the organization at their annual telethon which will be held at the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center in Evansville on April 13. Bend Gate staff and students will present their check at approximately 4 p.m.

The entire Hop-N-Ing curriculum (including dolls, scripts, stories, and a video) is available ‘for loan’ to area preschool and elementary teachers.

Those who want more information about the Hop-N-Ing disability awareness curriculum may contact Jamie Bandy, Special Events/Communications Coordinator, Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, (812) 492-0667.

The Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center ensures that people with disabilities have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play. The Center provides services for approximately 5,550 individuals from 30 area counties, and no one is turned away due to inability to pay for therapy services.
