  • Underwrite the snacks and/or activities for a month in our recreation space  and/or the kitchen in the main Eddy House. This would be approximately 5,000 snacks each month. Snacks can be purchased or collected as donations at your location. We love healthy snacks. We will recognize your group for the month of your choosing, but please let us know when you are selecting a month so we don’t double book! You may also want to consider seasonal items such as ice cream in the summer or warm soups in the winter.

Underwrite a special project. We always have special projects that need champions like you! We have projects with budgets that range from $3,000 – $8,000. Many of these projects are currently on the Wishlist! Some of our most pressing needs include upgrades in our Tech Center, games and activities . If your group would like to be a champion of a special project, please contact us today so we can work with you to develop a plan and provide you with all of the support you might need.
