Hospitality Donations:


   The Eno River Academy Hospitality Team is a teacher-led group looking to celebrate and encourage teachers on a regular basis. We do this by providing snacks in the workroom, celebrating teachers on their birthdays, organizing social events, sending flowers and cards on big occasions, throwing baby showers, and much more! We are also trying to provide some general school supplies for refill purposes like sticky notes etc. that are often purchased by teachers. If you would like to support teachers at ERA, please consider donating non-perishable snacks (see list below) or  donating to the school specifying that it is for “Hospitality.” There is also a QR code if you would prefer to order via Amazon and have it shipped to our hospitality committee. Thanks in advance for all your support!
