Erie Free Store
Based on Free Store 15104, we have adopted the same mission statement: Be Kind. Pay It Forward. Take What you Need.
Programs and Services
Erie Free Store is open weekly and provides clothing, shoes, household items, games, toys and miscellaneous items for our shoppers. We are volunteer run and donation based. We are often blown away by the generosity in the donations of Erie residents.
During the pandemic, Erie Free Store reopened in a larger space within the Elmwood Avenue Church building. We hosted drive through coat and toy distributions--with over 400 children receiving toys and many people receiving brand new (or gently used) winter coats.
We are celebrating our 5 year anniversary in November 2021.
For 2022, We are planning a Free-ster (like Easter) dinner. We are excited for all that we have accomplished and thankful for continued support.
