About 160 Easter Seals-Goodwill participants, staff, and volunteers are having some fun in the sun! This non-profit human services organization serves more than 25,000 people with developmental disabilities or aging adults across Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Utah. Today's 6th annual summer carnival, complete with dunk tank, music, and games, is a chance for building community. Team Leader, Danni Altenburg, says, "it doesn't matter if we have a disability or not. We can still enjoy dancing, games, intermingle with each other and our peers while building friendships".
Staff say many of the participants do not have the opportunity to attend the Montana State Fair or out of town carnivals, so today the carnival is coming to them! It's all possible thanks to partners in the community for donating time, food, and prizes.
