ECHO of Brandon Partnership to Help Less Fortunate Families During the Holiday Season
Braille Works has partnered with ECHO (Emergency Care Help Organization) of Brandon, Florida to bring food items and personal hygiene supplies to individuals in Eastern Hillsborough County. ECHO began serving the needs of individuals, children and families in 1987, today they are servicing around 16,000 people locally, close to half are children.
ECHO is dedicated to providing temporary assistance to families in need with the goal of helping them toward self-sufficiency. Braille Works believes in supporting this mission and has set a company goal to collect enough food, supplies and monetary donations to assist at least 500 families in the local area.
Follow our lead, show your love this holiday season by collecting for or giving to a food bank or similar organization in your area. Boy Scouts of America has made it easy to give in many areas by placing a grocery bag on your mailbox or door. Many communities are participating in events like “Stuff the Bus” for the local food banks. Even, local grocery stores are making giving easier this season by having needed items at the register for you to purchase and donate.
