Erie Homes For Children And Adults MOVE Program

Eastside Family Y
5/19/22 - 7/1/22

For our social responsibility, Eastside YMCA is collecting supplies for Erie Homes For Children and Adults MOVE Program. MOVE (Making Opportunities for Volunteerism and Exploration) is EHCA’s licensed adult day program with a community focus. MOVE is designed to give adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities opportunities for success by providing them with choices and experiences involving community participation and creative expression.

Like many non-profits, EHCA MOVE has suffered from stagnant donations the past couple years. They are seeking the following:

Scrapbooking supplies

Craft supplies: canvas, glue, googly eyes, acrylic and water color paints, tie dye kits, yarn, holiday craft kits

Jewelry making supplies

Items can be dropped off in the donation box in our Lobby. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Orphan Angels Cat Sanctuary & Adoption Center

Glenwood Park
6/22/22 - 6/30/22


At Orphan Angels, our foster and adoption programs aim to place homeless cats, including those with special needs, FIV, and FeLV, into loving forever homes. We believe that every cat is adoptable; some just require a little more time, patience, and understanding than others to find the perfect match.

We are a free-roaming sanctuary. When you enter our doors the majority of the 100+ cats that live on the premises are free to roam about the space. The only cats that you will find in cages currently are due to medical or dietary needs – but we are working hard to remedy this issue with our new cage project.

We are a no-kill shelter. We never euthanize based on finances or space within the shelter. We serve as a voice for the voiceless


To treat each cat as our own and provide a free-roam safe haven for the injured, abandoned, and unloved. With the help of our community through education and advocation, we can give hope to the hopeless.


We rely solely on donations from the public. We accept donations of many kinds: monetary, supplies, tin cans for recycling, and your time! If you can’t adopt, there are many ways you can help out your local shelter.

Items can be brought to the Glenwood Park Welcome Center.
