Columbus Holiday Ornaments

Access-Ability (formerly Easter Seals)

There is an annual release of a collectible holiday ornament featuring prominent Columbus buildings issued by Access-Ability (formerly Easter Seals) as a fundraiser. Access-Ability loans durable medical equipment (wheelchairs, hospital beds, shower seats and more) to any Bartholomew Co. resident. In addition they have partnered with several other organizations to help them produce ornaments for their fundraisers.
