The Federal News Radio Community Spotlight for January is the Easter Seals Serving DC | MD | VA.

Bright Stars is a magical night at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in the nation's capital for more than 10,000 children and adults with disabilities, including wounded warriors, active duty military and veterans, and their families.

Over the years, this event has become a pillar of Easter Seals' annual fundraising efforts. As one of three events raising $1.2 million annually, Bright Stars is a crucial effort enabling Easter Seals to deliver services to children and adults with disabilities and their families year-round.

Easter Seals provides exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs, including military, wounded warriors, veterans and their families, have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.

Easter Seals Child Development Centers offer high-quality care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years in a unique environment where children of all abilities learn together. The program ensures early identification and intervention to guarantee children reach their potential to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.
