Central Ohio's Largest Irish-American Women's Organization
"American by birth, Irish by the grace of God!"
Dear Daughters of Erin Members,

We are thankful for each and every one of you and miss you very much. Due to the increase in Covid-19 cases in our state, we will not be holding an in-person meeting and Christmas Party Sunday, Dec. 13 at 2 pm. Instead we will once again be Zooming. Watch for Zoom details in the next newsletter.

Thank you for registering for Kroger Rewards and Amazon Smiles, we raised more to $200 during the first six months of the year.

Congratulations to Becky Ellis, winner of the Irish Quilt Raffle.

Nominations for the 2021 Irish Woman of the Year are due to me via emal at mckoprs@yahoo.com or a Board Member no later than Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Looking forward to seeing you on Zoom in December and very possibly in January! Stay safe!


We have appreciated the support of the Central Ohio Irish Community over the years for their great generosity purchasing gifts to fulfill the needs of our Adopt-A-Families.

This year, possibly more than ever due to the COVID pandemic, we are asking for your help.

We have 10 families that are in great need of assistance. We have created a Sign-Up Genius page with items that you can purchase for the families, or you can make a monetary donation and we will purchase the gifts on your behalf.  There are 26 children in these families. If you purchase a gift and would like to have it shipped directly to us, please put the following shipping information on the package: Cheryl Costello, 235 Walhalla Road, Columbus, OH 43202.

If you would like us to pick up the gift from you (we can do no contact pick-up), those arrangements can be made easily. We will need to have all the gifts by Saturday, Dec. 12 to give us a week to prepare before delivering to the families the week before Christmas.

If you have any questions or just need additional details, please call or text Cheryl Costello at 614-774-8879 or email at cherylcostello@yahoo.com.  Thank you for your generous support of this charity work.

  • We continuing to collect gently-used children's books to be donated to the Ohio Job & Family Services for children who come in with their parents for benefit assistance. Please let Cheryl know if you have books.

Annually, the Daughters of Erin membership names the Irish Woman of the Year. She is recognized as an outstanding leader and contributor in the DOE, their career, church, cultural, volunteer and civic activities. Nominations for the 2020 Irish Woman of the Year are due, in writing, no later than Wednesday, Dec. 9 to Chris McKenzie by mail to P.O. Box 1912, Columbus, OH 43216-1912 or via e-mail to mckoprs@yahoo.com. You can also give letters to a Board Member no later than Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Please keep our members and those on the prayer list in your thoughts and prayers including Nancy Harding, Dort Byrne, Joe Byrne, Kathleen McNamara Thomas, Pete Lynch, and the Toner family members. We pray for the Berkemer family for the loss of Susan. May love and unity surround all people, and all be healed, especially those affected by the coronavirus. We also pray for all those in the military, police and healthcare workers.

Thank you ladies for shopping at Kroger and choosing to benefit the Daughters of Erin. Last month, we received more that $93. This money is raised from Kroger Cards registered through Kroger Community Rewards.

Signing up or registering your account is easy to do. The best part is that YOU still receive your Kroger rewards (coupons, fuel perks, etc) but behind the scenes, the Daughters of Erin receives a percentage of what you spend at the Kroger Store.
In the search field, type in Daughters of Erin or enter the organization # 81910.
Thank you for your support!

The Daughters of Erin is registered for AmazonSmile, a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices and convenient shopping features as found on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on http://smile.amazon.com/, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to charitable organizations.
