Note From Our Executive Director

As we close the books on yet another year, I would be remiss if I did not THANK all of you who have supported ECHO in 2015.  Thank you for the donations of food and clothing.  Thank you for attending our events and shopping at our Saturday sales.  Thank you for your financial contributions.  Your generosity made it possible for us to provide true hope and relief to our neighbors in need. THANK YOU! 

Look what's happening...


Looking for an opportunity to serve or give?  We have two opportunities available every 2nd Saturday of the month!

The Seeds of Faith Community Garden holds a serve day from 8-10 am.  The garden supplies ECHO with over 1500 pounds of fresh produce each year!  Volunteers are needed for planting, harvesting, and weeding.  Simply check in and get serving.

Located directly behind Bay Life Church:  1017 North Kingsway Road 33510. 

Shop for a cause!  Our annual Trunk Show was so successful, we decided to offer a mini one each and every month.  Find high quality name brand clothing as well as amazing vintage finds at bargain prices.  Proceeds provide fresh eggs, butter, and cheese for our clients.  

Get shopping:  located in our Community Room.
