New Ways to Give!

i Oct 23rd 1 Comment by

Since 2006, Erick’s Place has been dedicated to serving chronically ill children and those caring for them through the following six programs:

My PJs – collection and distribution of brand new pajamas to chronically ill children in area hospitals and pediatric facilities

Caregivers Count – grants for caregivers of chronically ill children

Assistive Technology Grants – awarded to hospitals and pediatric facilities

Scholarships – for undergraduates with leadership experience who are committed to serving the pediatric chronically ill community.

Resources – for those who would like more extensive information

Forgive for You – speaking programs

It is through support from donors that we are able to reach more children and their caregivers every year. Now there are new ways you can give!

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)

The Combined Federal Campaign is a partnership between Federal employees, the Federal Government and charitable organizations. As a participating employee, you’re able to focus your funding on charities that support the issues you care most deeply about.

The CFC has been around more than 45 years and has a proven track record for efficiency. Federal employees review the charities on an annual basis and only those that meet high standards can participate in the CFC.
