ERIN’S HOUSE FOR GRIEVING CHILDREN RECEIVES $20,000 GRANT FROM LOCAL ARBY’S RESTAURANTS

[JANUARY 26, 2022] FORT WAYNE, IN – Staff from regional Arby’s restaurants presented Erin’s House with an incredible $20,000 check on January 4, 2022. Arby’s Foundation is committed to helping kids build, expand, and pursue their dreams. The foundation has contributed more than $110 million to youth-related causes since its inception in 1986.

“To be selected by the Arby’s staff for this generous grant is an absolute honor,” says Debbie Meyer, Executive Director of Erin’s House. “These funds will allow Erin’s House programs to touch even more hearts of kids in our community.”

In 2021, Erin’s House served more than 1,900 individuals through their peer-support programs. Because of the community’s generosity and grants such as this, families never have to worry about paying for services or getting their children the grief support they need when they need it the most.
