Coronavirus Response- Resources and Events
Tiger Packs Drop off/Pick up on Tuesday, March 17 was a huge success!
Thank you Erie community!
We received such generous donations that we were able to provide the families we serve with our usual Tiger Packs, large boxes of extra food items including loaves of bread, gas and grocery cards, toiletries, Girl Scout cookies and craft kits.
Here is one of the thankful messages we received:
"I thought I was going to have to choose between feeding my family and getting my ignition cylinder replaced. Until I saw how much y'all gave us! On top of the gift cards for King Soopers!"
Erie UpLink is privileged to partner with Erie/SVVSD schools, Erie Food Bank, Erie churches, area organizations and Individuals like YOU to coordinate food-assistance and resources for Erie families during this uncertain time.
