Erie Gives Results

Our generous benefactors contributed over $1,900 which includes this year's Erie Gives match 6.1%. This is a 33+% increase over last year and we are so grateful to those who gave. Money donated will go toward our Blizzard Bag program which gives 8 lbs. of emergency shelf stable food to every client. With costs rising and income remaining stable for so many years, these donations are especially welcome. Erie Gives is now an fully established day of annual giving and it benefits over a hundred Erie County non-profits. The Erie Community Foundation, and CEO Michael Batchelor, have created a lasting legacy for Erie County and for those whom we serve.

Erie County LINK

We are one of over 25 member organizations and companies that serve Erie's aging population. LINK To Aging And Disability Resources is a collaborative effort among community agencies and the Office of Long Term Living (OLTL) to provide information about services and supports to individuals over the age of 60 and persons 18 to 59 with disabilities. LINK members evaluate services necessary to retain independence, make connections with organizations that provide needed services, and assist with applications to determine funding eligibility.
