Easterseals Colorado (ESC) is honoring Charles Schwab at its 12th Annual Season of Lights Gala on Saturday, November 5, 2022. For more than 20 years, Charles Schwab has supported ESC and Rocky Mountain Village (RMV) camp in Empire, Colorado through Schwab Volunteer Week projects to enhance RMV camp, Schwab Pro Bono Challenge to provide expertise in marketing and sales, employee board service, and volunteer projects that engage Schwab employees and their families.
Charles Schwab is a proud sponsor of many ESC activities and events and has integrated people with disabilities into its workforce and workplace culture. Charles Schwab and its employees have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to ESC over the last 20 years.
Charles Schwab will receive the prestigious Jake Jabs Community Impact Award. The award – named in honor of American Furniture Warehouse founder and CEO Jake Jabs – recognizes community leaders and organizations who are dedicated to changing the way the world views and defines disability. It is a privilege to place the Charles Schwab name among these leaders.
“Easterseals and Charles Schwab share so many of the same values to empower people today to achieve a better tomorrow! We are honored to be able to partner with Easterseals Colorado, who supports so many with challenges to live their best lives!” says David Detterick, Senior Manager, Charles Schwab.
“Year in and year out, Charles Schwab and its employees have always been one of our biggest advocates,” says Roman Krafczyk, President/CEO at ESC. “They live our mission to get involved and provide priceless guidance to propel our organization forward.”
