September of last year, Eat My Catfish had the opportunity to give back to the community in a large way. Eat My Catfish welcomed the chance to work with Easterseals Arkansas. Easterseals Arkansas has been improving the lives of the disabled and their families for the better part of eighty years.

Who are Easterseals and what do they do?
Easterseals assists disabled persons and their families by offering services such as child development centers, physical rehabilitation, and job training. Originally known as The Arkansas Association for the Crippled, Easterseals Arkansas accomplished many firsts in the world of the disabled: The first inpatient facility for children in barracks at JAFB for polio and other conditions, the first speech therapy program, the first traveling “mobile unit” to provide several therapies, and the first adult work program. After these initial beginnings, Easterseals went one to facilitate many other locations for the benefit of those often overlooked.

“Your life and mine shall be valued not by what we take, but by what we give.”
-Edgar Allen, Founder of Easterseals
Eat My Catfish understands and upholds this same merit as the founder of the Easterseals himself. Because of this, it was agreed that a collaboration between Eat My Catfish and Easterseals Arkansas was unmissable. Motions were set forth for Eat My Catfish to donate ten percent of net sales on September 27th, 2017 between the times of 5:30PM and 7:30PM at the Little Rock location on North Rodney Parham.
If you or anyone you know, are interested in volunteering, donating, or getting involved in any general manner, please visit http://www.easterseals.com/arkansas/get-involved/ for further information. Eat My Catfish looks forward to the future developments of collaborations with Easterseals Arkansas!
