Note From Our Executive Director
This past Tuesday, we honored our most precious of all asserts: our volunteers. Over 100 volunteers serve the families of ECHO on a weekly basis. They are on the front lines of intake, hearing first hand stories of crisis and need, they are in the donation room, welcoming all dropping off, they serve in the clothing room, often acting as personal shoppers for those who find themselves overwhelmed by life, they are in our food pantry, gladly gathering meat. produce, butter, and eggs for those who are hungry, and they are in our board room making sure that all is accounted for. How thankful we are for their service! For those who give and serve local!
Thank you to those who give...
