You can help assure that the EA program is available to anyone who needs it:

"Before the pandemic I always put a few dollars in the basket every week when we met at the community center. I was so grateful that my group simply moved to a virtual platform when COVID struck! I needed my group!

But I realized that I had stopped supporting the organization that means so much to me without a basket in front of me!  So I chose to sign up for monthly contributions through my bank account - it's safe and easy! Now I'm back to supporting EA as I always did. I'm doing my part to make sure the program is alive and well for everyone who needs it!"

If you can make a contribution now, please do so online, over the phone, or by mailing it to P.O. Box 4245 Saint Paul, MN 55104-0245 USA. Thank you!
