Doug MacKenzie along with the hard work and dedication of former staff, local businesses and the good people of Woodstock, has to date raised $ 51,906 for ESNB.
Easter Seals New Brunswick is a bilingual, not-for-profit organization, working in partnership with persons with disabilities, enabling them to attain independence and equality of opportunity available in their communities. All proceeds raised from the Paper Egg Campaign stay in the community. Donations go to fund programs run by ESNB which; provide long term loans or adaptive equipment (wheelchairs, walkers etc.) to clients, recycle used equipment enabling it to be used by other clients, provides communication devices in French and English schools, and sends children and adults with disabilities to Camp Rotary in Grand Lake N.B.
