Yesterday a few Nickle employees attended a check presentation at the Easter Seals of Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore location in Georgetown. We donated $500 to benefit the Walk With Me Delmarva event in October to help the organization provide life-changing services to children and adults with disabilities. It’s the first annual walking event for this Easter Seals chapter.

Spencer Kane, 13, is an Easter Seals Walk With Me Delmarva Ambassador. He and his twin sister were born premature and Spencer’s chances of surviving after birth were unlikely. But through Early Intervention Services and Outpatient Rehabilitation Therapies from Easter Seals, Spencer has lived beyond the doctor’s expectations.
Three-year-old Janene Riley-Spillane is also a Walk With Me Delmarva Ambassador and is making great progress thanks to Easter Seals. She was diagnosed with multiple disabilities and participates in Early Intervention Services along with physical, occupational, and speech therapy to continue improving. Through these services, Janene has learned to roll over, crawl, and recently took her first steps using a walker.
“On behalf of all the employees at Nickle Electrical, we’re proud to support such a worthwhile cause,” Dignan said. “To be a part of this terrific fundraising event is a pleasure.”
The non-profit organization has nearly reached their fundraising goal of $10,000. To participate in the walk, which takes place on October 13, or if you would like to make a donation, please visit the website here.
Nickle completed electrical work on the new 28,000-square-foot Georgetown building in 2005. The endeavor was accomplished in conjunction with Nason Construction and includes office space with therapy and treatment rooms.
