ERIN'S HOUSE WISH LIST

Our annual Holiday Gathering will be on
Friday, December 20th!

We need your help to provide each child and teen with a new board game and a stocking filled with lots of goodies to help bring them a little holiday cheer.

Because no family is ever charged a fee to attend Erin’s House, we rely on monetary and in-kind donations to make our programs possible. Thank you for considering us and the local families we serve!

**We kindly ask that all in-kind donations are brand new.

Want to make your donation go further?
Shop online at Amazon Smile and a portion of your purchase comes back to the Center!!

If you’d prefer we do the shopping, monetary donations are also greatly appreciated!
