Benefits The Erin Jessica Moreken Drug & Alcohol Treatment Fund
A Non-Profit Organization 501C3

Erinís Fund was established in 2002 for the purpose of helping young people find and obtain treatment for their drug and alcohol addictions. Erin Jessica Moreken was a resident of our area, graduate of Scranton High School, and student at Temple University, when she met a premature death at the age of twenty eight due to a drug overdose. The Tour de Scranton is being held in her memory, so that young people of our region may benefit from treatment and live their lives and their dreams by conquering their addictions through treatment.
