Dan MacMillan, ERC Board member, is our favorite "gleaner." He single-handedly picks fruits and vegetables for neighbors, and delivers sacks of fresh produce to the Empire, to One Safe Place, to the Good News Rescue Mission, and other community agencies.  We really appreciate his efforts and his energy.

For 4 years Mercy Foundation North has had a Festival of Trees, raising funds for their Hospice program.  And the California Emergency Physicians Group sponsored one of the beautiful, artist-created, trees to be delivered to the ERC for the entire Holiday Season.  We are so thrilled and thankful for the generosity of Mercy Foundation North,  and California Emergency Physicians!

Did you know that the McConnell Foundation donates meats following  4H and community fairs to various non-profits in our area?  The Foundation is a great friend of the area non-profits.                  Thank you!!

Horizons Foundation has notified the ERC of a donation from the Needy Divas Donor Advised Fund !  

The Redding Rancheria, Shasta Community Regional Foundation, has provided the Empire Recovery Center with $1,000 for  new laptops!    Thank you to the Redding Rancheria and SCRF!!

Redding Rotary removes the old bar!  4/14/15

"Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts."          Henri Frederic Amiel                    



Union Bank has given the Empire $5,000 for new beds!  Thank you, Union Bank Foundation!
