Elizabeth Rose Olsen Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.
How does your financial contribution help?
When you join the mission of the EROF, A 501 ( c ) (3) charitable organization, you help us to provide:
Bicycles for sober houses to be used by the residents who often have no transportation to Medical appointments, job interviews, work, 12 Step meetings, and sober gatherings.
Grocery store gift cards for sober houses to help sustain individuals who are food insecure.
Basic toiletries and hygiene products.
New socks and underwear.
Laundry detergent, cleaning supplies and toilet paper not always supplied by sober houses.
Since we started the Foundation, it was apparent that the thing most of these individuals lacked was love. That lead to our decision to provide Christmas gifts to all those living in any of the sober houses or small treatment centers we help throughout the year. This project has grown enormously.
In 2017, 225 gifts went to 4 facilities. They are still with us today.
In 2018, 475 gifts were given to 15 locations.
In 2019, 600 men and women living in 14 facilities received a gift bag.
In 2020, despite the Covid 19 pandemic 750 gifts bags were assembled and delivered to 19 locations.
The last two years I have been blessed to have the support of many amazing women who help wrap and package these gifts. We will be starting up again in July for this year. Sadly, we know the numbers will be even greater.
When you donate to the Foundation, we will match your donation dollar-for-dollar in order to bring Elizabeth’s light to as many as possible. We are approved as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
