“Mother of the Movement” Annual Retreat
We are proud to announce a new program designed to support the Mothers of the Movement – women who have tragically lost their sons to gun violence or police brutality. This program provides a retreat for these courageous women to relax, reflect, and connect with others who share similar experiences. During the retreat, the mothers will have the opportunity to participate in activities that will help them heal, and plan strategies for combatting gun violence in their communities. This program is our way of showing our support and appreciation for the strength and resilience of these remarkable women.
Annual Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway
The E.R.I.C. Initiative Foundation is proud to sponsor an annual Thanksgiving meal giveaway in under-served communities. Our goal is to ensure that all families, regardless of their financial situation, can celebrate Thanksgiving with dignity and joy. We believe that no child should go hungry on this day of giving thanks, and that is why we provide a nutritious meal that will nourish both the body and the soul. This event is just one of the many ways we strive to fight for social justice and make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
Annual Christmas Program
The E.R.I.C. Initiative Foundation is honored to sponsor an annual toy giveaway during the Christmas holiday season. This program was created in honor of Eric Garner, a beloved member of our community whose favorite holiday was Christmas. Together with local community leaders, and police officers, we hand out toys to children in need, spreading joy and love throughout the holiday season. Our goal is to create a festive atmosphere that not only honors Eric Garner but also brings together members of the community in a spirit of unity and compassion. We believe that every child deserves to experience the magic of the holidays, and we are proud to play a small part in making that happen.
