Donate Goods and Services
What YOU can do to help
16,000 individuals came through our doors last year looking for a meal . . . looking for change. Meeting the needs of our community is made possible through donations. Your gently-used or surplus clothing and household goods can change lives! That’s because your donated items are used in one of three ways.
- They either go directly to our neighbors in need.
- We recycle, re-purpose and reuse through our upscale, up-cycle ECHO Handmade Online Store.
- Local neighbors also benefit, as they have come to rely on the bargains at our monthly Thrift sale to make their own ends meet.
You can help by making a personal donation of our most needed items, hosting a donation drive, providing bulk donations or donating gently used items for the family we serve. Businesses can also help by providing goods or services.
Our most needed items:
- Peanut Butter
- Canned Meats
- Canned Vegetables and Fruit
- Canned or Bagged beans
- Diapers/Pull Ups
- Hygiene Products
We also used donated items at our ECHO Handmade online store.
Ties, silverware, jeans, etc. are turned into fashionable one of kind bags, pouches, cuff and key chains that is sold on our online store and local vendors, like The Green Boutique and The Revolution Ice Cream Company.
Here’s some easy steps to follow:
Step 1: Determine whether or not the items you wish to donate are useful.
We can only make use of items that are new, nearly new or gently used. If you don’t have use for your old, tattered items, chances are it will also be a burden to a person in need. Our mission is to promote dignity among those we serve by providing them the things they need to make a fresh start.
