ERICA:  Save the Date

What do these three things have in common:  an early 19th-century illustrated print of the 10 Commandments from New York, a carefree week in sunny St.Maarten, and an adorable hand-knit child’s sweater, with an elephant on it?  Answer:  You can bid on all of them at the 2022 ERICA Silent Auction!  

Help support ERICA’s work with refugees, asylum-seekers and other humanitarian arrivals by bidding on these (and dozens of other) donated items on September 16th, in an online, silent auction.  The link to this auction will be available soon on ERICA’s new website at  Check it out!
