Country Fair annually gives to a variety of local charities. These donations range from youth sports team sponsorship to major non-profit organizational sponsorship. With so many deserving non-profits in our hometown community, Country Fair wanted to make a larger impact. The Country Fair Cares program was created to assist 501 c-3 non-profit organizations with a pooled funding formula.
Country Fair’s leadership selected five non-profit organizations to become 2019 Country Fair Cares (CFC) partners. These partners include The ANNA Shelter, Emma’s Footprints, Crime Victim Center of Erie County, ServErie and Meals on Wheel – Erie.
2¢ of every gallon of gasoline sold at the designated “CFC Charity Pump” will be allocated to the CFC program. Funds will be dispersed equally to each charity.
The program runs from April 1- September 30, 2019, at all Erie county Country Fair locations.
Non-Profits who wish to apply to be a CFC partner in 2020 may submit an application which can be downloaded below. The deadline to apply is October 15, 2019.
The Anna Shelter
It is our goal to provide unwanted/stray animals with a safe nurturing environment where they can be either reunited with their owners or placed into new life-long, loving homes. We are committed to providing these animals the proper care and attention they need to thrive in our facility and try to accommodate their individual needs. Ultimately, we will work daily to provide as many adoptable animals the opportunity to find new homes. Click here to visit their website.
