Our former pastor, Fr. Martin, would always say, we were generous to the poor around the world and across the street.
ECHO continues to need donations of every kind of food and hygiene item. We especially need canned fruit, canned tomato products, canned meats, laundry detergent and cleaning supplies, but all new, unopened foods and personal supplies are welcome and appreciated, though giant sizes are difficult to use.
ECHO is still unable to accept donations of clothing or household goods at this time. We are only, but gratefully, accepting food and financial donations. ECHO is currently closed on Wednesday evenings, but is open to receive donations on weekdays from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm, and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00. Donors do not even have to get out of their cars, or bring bags or boxes to the door. Volunteers will come to your vehicle to get the donated foods.

We have reached out to our laundromat community in Falls Church and are mailing swipe cards that have been pre-filled with cash to allow the families we serve to continue to have clean clothing. Laundromats are considered essential businesses, and many of our community members have lost their modest sources of income during this difficult time. They really need this ministry more than ever, and we are so thankful that we can continue to help, even from a distance.
Anyone interested in making a monetary donation to the Nativity Laundry Love Team can do so online or by mailing it directly to the Parish Office, indicating Laundry Love in the memo line. We can be reached at [email protected], or by calling 703-672-0753.
