Erie Gives Is Today!

You've seen this acorn before, I'm sure. Actually, Erie Gives is a pretty smart idea. It's the only time this year you can give to a nonprofit and have your donation increased through a pro-rated match. The Erie Community Foundation, GE, Erie Insurance Group and Presque Isle Downs and Casino are giving a total of $200,000 in funds to spread among participating nonprofits.

You can give by credit card at or by check by calling the Erie Community Foundation at 454-0843 between 8AM and 8PM TODAY!
