Annual Benefit Project

We are pleased to announce that this year’s Annual Meeting Benefit Project is in conjunction with Erma’s House of Dayton, Ohio.

ermashouseErma’s House opened its doors in 1997 as a result of a task force on child welfare developed by Montgomery County commissioners and led by Brother Raymond Fitz, S.M., President of the University of Dayton. It was named in honor of Erma Bombeck, a 1949 University of Dayton graduat
e, who became one of the most popular newspaper columnists of all time. The mission of Erma’s House is to assist and support the children and families who have been affected by divorce, separation, abuse, or neglect; in maintaining or rebuilding their family relationships through a program of safe, structured, community-based visitation services. Erma’s House, which depends on a large group of
volunteers, provides rooms specifically designed and furnished with toys, books, and snacks for children of various age groups.

Please consider joining our efforts in raising awareness and donations for Erma’s House. We would welcome donations of individually, pre-packaged snacks for the children such as:

  • Popcorn (microwave)snacks
