How to Get Involved

Need Help?

ECHO has made some modifications to times, hours and procedures as order by the county and for the safety of our staff.

You are probably wondering what this means to our neighbors in need . . . ECHO is still here to help.  Still fulfilling our mission of neighbors helping neighbors.

Food will continue to be distributed, 6 month waiting period will be lifted and we will be handing out pre-made food bags based on family size. Due to our volunteers being asked to stay home . . . food distribution is the only service we will be providing at this time.
