Note From Our Executive Director

Our Center Director, Paulina and I recently had the honor of assisting a mother of 12.  Yes, you read it right....12!  Her hardworking husband had not yet received payment from his last job and the family was in dire straits.  YOU made it possible for ECHO to stand in the gap for this family.  They left with enough food to feed everyone for a week!

A volunteer gardener!
ECHO recently received a makeover and we want to continue to make our building beautiful. If you or anyone you know has a love for gardening and would like to be a part of ECHO's team we would love to have you.

Help us, help our neighbors!

Your donation to ECHO will assist in suppling close to 100 families with food and clothing every week. It will help the unemployed acquire job skills and find jobs with local employers. Your donation ensures that GED test are passed. ECHO is so much more than just food and clothing. Our classes help struggling heads of households learn life changing money management skills and young mothers learn to set long term goals. Donate to ECHO on May 3, 2016 and help us provide to our neighbors. 

This year, our goal is $10,000!!

It’s so simple to give during Give Day Tampa Bay. Simply visit https://giveday.org/npo/echo-of-brandon on May 3, 2016



Ready, Set, Give!
