Community Outreach Ideas and Opportunities

Dear ERA Families,

Eagle Ridge Academy community has expressed interest in helping others. In an effort to provide as much support to our community as possible, and as a way to be unified in our desire to help, we are providing an avenue for people to express their ideas for support and willingness to help.

From book distribution to food shelf support, ideas have been suggested by several people. If you have a suggestion of a community support project or are interested in providing supportive services to those in need, I ask that you contact me directly at [email protected]. All ideas will be reviewed and combined (if similar), then carefully determined to be actionable and feasible.

The response to our call for cloth face masks, gloves, and lotion for our frontline ERA staff has been truly amazing and we are grateful for the donations to help keep everyone safe. Supplies can be dropped off between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. M-F at the main entrance of Eagle Ridge Academy.  

More options will be added to this sign-up as they are identified.

Being a helper in time of need is a great gift to others…and to ourselves as we struggle in feeling of helplessness. Thank you.

With gratitude,


Kelly Schiffman, ERA Community Outreach

I love this idea! I got back into wood burning over distance learning and I could include that in making signs.
