Host a Drive
You Can Host a Drive
Hundreds of our neighbors in need come through our Welcome Center on a monthly basis, looking for help. . . looking for hope. YOU can be a part of ECHO’s grassroots effort to serve the hungry and the vulnerable in our community. Be an inspiration! Inspire others to help their neighbors in need by hosting a drive at your place of work, worship, school, neighborhood, or civic organizations.
