Our former pastor, Fr. Martin, would always say, we were generous to the poor around the world and across the street.
Due to the covid-19 outbreak and its restrictions , ECHO will not have its monthly food drive. However, ECHO has stayed open during this time to assist our client base and the members of the community with limited financial support and food. Food has been given out to 57 families in the first week of this situation, which more than equals the amount given in one month during normal times.
Therefore you can see that there is a tremendous need for food as ECHO’s supplies are being rapidly used. We are asking that you continue to donate food to ECHO by stopping by (7205 Old Keene Mill Road) with any food or financial donations that you may have. Nativity has generously donated between 2000 and 3000 pounds of food each month and if we can get just some of this amount, our supplies and the number of families that ECHO could assist would be increased.Help Today
