You can make a difference by making a donation to the Epilepsy Foundation New England Donation Center. Epilepsy is a medical condition characterized by recurrent, unprovoked seizures. Many people with epilepsy have more than one type of seizure and may have other symptoms of neurological problems. There are approximately 65 million people in the world who live with epilepsy. Epilepsy can make life extremely difficult, and limit a person’s life experiences. You can help those living with epilepsy by donating items. By donating items, you too, will help us in funding programs that support those living with epilepsy.
We provide Youth Services, including summer camps, year round programs for elementary and middle school (Kids Connect), and young adults (Young Leaders Network), as well as a scholarship program; Resource and Support Services including emergency financial aid, helpdesk, support groups, retreats, and our Remembrance Network for people who have lost someone to epilepsy; Community Education; Public Policy Advocacy; and Fundraising for Research.
In March 2020, all our services became available by video conference and/or phone. Programs include multiple daily opportunities for children, youth, and adults to connect, regular webinars, conferences, parent education and support, and themed support groups, such as groups geared towards men. Our 2020 camp season will be virtual.
Established in 2009, the EFNE Donation Center is an LLC of Epilepsy Foundation NE. Thanks to a partnership with Savers, the Donation Center collects clothing and household items that are resold through 14 regional thrift stores.
