NEW CASTLE – Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore, one of Delaware’s largest non-profits, received a $100,000 grant from New Castle County to improve the organization’s building in New Castle for people with disabilities.Easterseals

Easterseals will use the grant to repair and upgrade existing bathrooms throughout its New Castle building to help minimize the spread of germs that could lead to COVID and other illnesses. Last year, Easterseals served more than 2,900 individuals in New Castle, either in the building or in the community. Included in the improvements is the installation of touchless technology in the bathrooms.

“This grant helps us make needed improvements to ensure that our on-site services at our New Castle site provide an even safer environment for the adults in the day programs as well as our staff,” Easterseals President & CEO Ken Sklenar said in a prepared statement. “The presentation of this grant is just one more example of our partnership with New Castle County. We are grateful for this partnership which includes the New Castle County based Hope Center, where our prevocational workers are learning important job skills to help them find employment in the community.”
