2019 Erie Gives Day

Erie Gives Day

Join us on Erie’s biggest day of giving and make a difference for the children at Sarah Reed! Erie Gives began in 2011 in honor of The Erie Community Foundation’s 75th Anniversary. Erie Gives 2019 takes place on August 13th between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. During this 12-hour period of online giving, a portion of the prorated match pool will be added to each donation you make through the Erie Gives website.

You can support the children at Sarah Reed by making your gift here on August 13th!

Your contribution makes a difference in so many ways, including:

*24-hour medical and psychiatric care for children ages 5-18 at our Residential Treatment Facility in Millcreek

*Funding for the children to attend horse therapy at Blended Spirits Ranch in Fairview, PA

*Therapeutic games & educational activities for children and families in our Outpatient Behavioral Health Program

*Chromebooks and educational technology for the classrooms

*Art & recreational supplies for the children at multiple program locations throughout Erie County

If you have questions or you’d prefer to make your gift directly to Sarah A. Reed Children’s Center over the phone, please call Gary Bukowski, CFRE, associate vice president for development, at (814) 835-7602.
