Everything that we do, we do for the good of the community. But without donations from patrons like you, we wouldn’t be able to do those things. Your donations allow us to give young adults the guidance they need to pave a better future. They allow us to provide education to schools and workplaces about the LGBT community. Thanks to your donations, we can make Erie a better place, for everyone.
