Be sure to enter your gift of $25 or more on the Erie Gives website between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 14. This year Erie Gives Day donations will benefit the Children's Care Fund.
The Children’s Care Fund is our most versatile fund at Hamot Health Foundation. It defrays costs for pediatric patients and their families, funds local school and community needs related to child health and safety, and funds state-of-the-art equipment, technology, and therapy for UPMC Hamot’s NICU and Children’s Specialty Care Center. In just the last two months, this fund has been used to cover the cost of a sensory-friendly movie night with the Epilepsy Project, child-friendly waiting rooms at Safe Harbor Behavioral Health of UPMC Hamot, and a concussion clinic for local high school athletes.
Last year 7,685 donors gave a record breaking total of $4,427,877 and we hope that you will help us break the record again this year. For more information, please visit eriegives.org or call our office at (814) 877-7020.
