Winter Food Drive Thank You!
From the President of Ecumenical Community Helping Others (ECHO) to SCNV and our sponsor The Good Life Team, a written thank you for supporting our Winter Food Drive! As shared by ECHO:

“I want to extend the thanks of all ECHO volunteers and clients for your support of our Holiday Food program through your donation of 15 Christmas Baskets.

“As we celebrate over 50 years of service to the Springfield/Burke community, we recognize that it is only possible to help more than 1,700 families because of the heartfelt care and concerns of this community. Our wonderful volunteers have continued to provide emergency food, clothing, financial assistance and school backpacks during the crises – assistance desperately needed to keep families intact and children attend school. Holiday Food Baskets and a Holiday Gift Shop are especially important to families facing these uncertain times.

“We are truly grateful to have you on our “ECHO Team” and sharing in our mission. In today’s chaotic and unpredictable time, in which so many Americans are facing unemployment, resource shortages, and social isolation, reaching out to our fellow neighbors is particularly impactful—and necessary. Thank you for your much-needed assistance in helping those in need at this critical time.

Robert T. Vitter
