CVS Caremark + Easter Seals kids = a boo-tiful Halloween party

CVS/Caremark logoPartnerships. Collaboration. Cooperation. Friends. These powerful words represent the fantastic relationship we have with our Easter Seals corporate partner CVS Caremark. This partnership came shining through in Dallas during a Halloween celebration this year. Our friends at CVS ensured the children of Easter Seals had a wonderful celebration. Our guest blogger, Lenee Bashamwall, Vice President of Programs at Easter Seals North Texas, graciously provides an eye-witness account of the event.

Amazing, fabulous and wonderful

by Lenee Bashamwall

Last Monday Easter Seals North Texas was invited to bring a group of our children to CVS Caremark’s Regional Business Office to do an early trick or treat event with CVS leadership and associates there. Brian Ridgeway, the HR Director for Area 4, and his colleague Scott Lason were the ones who spearheaded this event. Brian has a nephew with autism, so our work really hits home with him. This celebration came right on the heels of a recent event at which nearly 100 CVS Caremark associates volunteered at three Easter Seals centers throughout North Texas!

It’s hard to find words to describe the Halloween party, but let me try. It was amazing, fabulous, and wonderful! They went all out. Their staff was dressed in costumes, they gave out all kinds of goodies, had crafts and games set up for the kids, provided lunch for everyone, and to top it all off, they gave our kids Toys R Us gift cards, and then gave the Easter Seals staff who attended $20 CVS gift cards!

CVS Caremark has a long standing commitment to making life easier for children with autism and other disabilities. Through its signature program, All Kids Can, CVS and theCVS/Pharmacy Charitable Trust help nonprofit organizations like Easter Seals raise awareness in schools and in local communities about the importance of inclusion.

Thank you, CVS Caremark, for including us in such a fun, fun, celebration. Happy Halloween!
