Sweet Tomatoes dishes up donations for people with disabilities in June

Four local Sweet Tomatoes have signed on to help people with disabilities during the month of June. Locations in Aurora, Littleton, Park Meadows and Westminster are offering bags of their famous daily baked chocolate chip cookies for $2.00 a bag with all proceeds going to Easter Seals Colorado (ESC).

The nonprofit, located in Lakewood, serves people with disabilities of all ages and ability levels with diverse programs, including a warm water therapy pool with classes and open swim time; a day program for survivors of stroke and those with other neurological conditions affecting motor and cognitive skills; an employment program; and, Discovery Club for children with disabilities over the age of 6. ESC also runs the Rocky Mountain Village in Empire, CO, a camping experience dedicated to children and youth with disabilities. Listed as one of the top Easter Seals camps in the U.S., Rocky Mountain Village is fully accessible and used by more than 800 children and young people during the summer months. See the 2010 summer schedule. Off season, ESC hosts related groups and offers businesses and community groups accommodations and food services for team building events, meetings and social gatherings. Contact ESC for more details, including rates.

In addition to the daily cookie opportunity to support Easter Seals Colorado, these four metro Denver Sweet Tomatoes locations will donate 20% of dining and beverage proceeds for those who come with this flyer in hand during the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 and Wednesday, June 23, 2010. Buying some cookies after dinner helps a few more people with disabilities achieve their goals for “sweet success.”
