All donations received through the Purple Pumpkin Project will go towards epilepsy and seizure first-aid education in classrooms throughout Simcoe County.
Epilepsy Simcoe County (ESC) was established in 1978 as a volunteer organization to assist Simcoe County with epilepsy and seizure education, support, awareness, and advocacy. We provide people living with the disease the education, understanding, and support they need in a caring and understanding environment. All of our services are free, and we do not receive any Government funding.
Epilepsy is a common disease with over 300,000 Canadians affected; it is estimated that 1 in 100 people in our area lives with the disease.
All donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt.
