Easterseals Crossroads Guild

Please describe your products and services.

"Easterseals Crossroads is a nonprofit organization on a mission to change the way the world views and defines disability by making a positive, profound impact in the lives of individuals every day. Last year, we served over 7,000 individuals with disabilities, including children, adults and veterans in dozens of programs ranging from pediatric therapy and behavioral services to assistive technology and job training. We're a womb-to-tomb service organization here to support individuals throughout their lifetime as they achieve milestones of independence. We have a dedicated group of remarkable volunteers who create crafts, decor, snacks and gifts for various projects throughout the year. The wonderful ladies of the Crossroads Guild make and sell towels, scrubbies, hats, Christmas decor, purses and accessories. All proceeds benefit programs serving children with disabilities."

What are your best tips for the holiday season?

"Our Director of Autism and Behavioral Services has some great tips to keep families running smoothly during a busy, stressful season: prioritize activities, be clear about activities and expectations, maintain a consistent sleep schedule, give children choices and reward appropriate behavior. Stay warm, stay safe and take care of yourself."

What are your featured items this season?

"Our most popular items are dish towels, scrubbies and hats."
