ECHO Inc -- Ecumenical Community Helping Others
All-volunteer basic needs assistance program for Springfield/Burke residents who suffer from long-term poverty or are experiencing an emergency need.
In May, 1968, a group of local people who cared about their neighbors who were struggling to make ends meet got together and organized ECHO. For 50 years, ECHO has been serving vulnerable residents, distributing donations from those who have enough to those who don’t, and making a happy place for volunteers to give their time and talent. ECHO honors all the organizers for their vision, all the volunteers for their selfless effort, and all the donors who have helped us make our community better for fifty years!
