Accomplished through their four Regional Centers where Regional Directors work with volunteers to collect and distribute donated groceries, toys, clothing, and household items as needed. Contributions from corporations, local businesses, families and civic associations help them to continue to make a difference and help to preserve the families’ quality of life.
Emergency funds are available for ECF families who find themselves in a financial crisis. These Funds help with basic services that a family needs to survive, such as rent or utilities. Sometimes, these funds reimburse the family for meals while they were in the hospital with their child. Tragically, in some incidents, funds are available for families who are unable to meet the high costs of memorial services.
