A few of Topeka’s most generous people were honored Thursday night as Easterseals Capper Foundation held their annual Donor Appreciation Reception.
The foundation helps people in the community overcome their disabilities.
People involved with the foundation said the generosity of others through donations is critical to providing quality service.
“It really is a village of people coming together, working together with us and others to make good things happen,” said Jim Leiker, Easterseals Capper Foundation CEO.
Emily McGee’s seven-year-old son has gone to the foundation since he was seven months old after surviving a stroke a birth. She said the Capper Foundation has helped her son immensely.
“Magic happens within that building that you just don’t realize until you step through those door,” McGee said.
“You truly can see the impact that you are making on families’ lives,” McGee continued about the importance of donors.
KSNT General Manager Robert Raff and Creative Services Manager Eileen McCaffrey were honored as well.
The award was in part for building awareness and sharing stories that are happening at the foundation.
