Christmas for Needy

Decmember 20
4:00 pm

The City of Echo and Echo Kiwanis’ Chester’s Food Pantry are organizing the annual Christmas basket program for needy Echo families. The Echo Boosters, school, and Echo Community Church are also helping with the annual Christmas food drive again this year.

Canned and packaged foods (please no home-canned or perishables except for fresh potatoes, onions or carrots) can be dropped by City Hall.

Students will also be collecting food.

The City of Echo and other local agencies have been coordinating the annual food baskets for needy families and Giving Tree toy drive for over 37 years. Food and toys are provided to residents of Echo only and only one food basket and turkey per household.

Food Baskets may be picked up Wednesday, December 20 between 4:00 and 5:00 pm at the Masonic Lodge, 20 S Dupont Street. If you need to have food delivered, let the city clerk know when you fill out the application.

If you need a food basket and/or Giving Tree gifts (children must be under 17) you need to come by City Hall at 20 S. Bonanza Street during business hours and fill out an application. Applications must be submitted before December 15 at 3:30 pm.

Delivery for those who sign up for home delivery will be the morning of Thursday, December 21. Gifts from the Giving Tree for children will be delivered at the same time.

The collection point for donations of food, toys (new or like new only please) and cash is City Hall. As well as dropping off donations, you can also mail donations to City Hall at the address below. Cash donations are used to purchase turkeys and perishables such as milk, butter, bread and celery or for gifts for children who’s names are left on the Giving Tree.

Food and toys can be donated to the school's food and toy drive or dropped by City Hall. Please provide donations by Monday, December 18 at 10:00 am.

Even if you normally pick up food at Chester’s Food Pantry each month, you still need to fill out the application at City Hall for Christmas and December ahead of time so that we have enough food and turkeys available. If you know a family in town who you feel needs a food basket or gifts, please contact City Hall on their behalf.

This event replaces the regular Kiwanis' Chester’s Food Pantry for December each year. Chester’s Food Pantry honors the late Chester Prior who worked diligently to get the program started through Echo Kiwanis.

The Bob Hale Memorial Fund within the Echo Boosters also provides funds for needy families at Christmas. Echo School children donate food items that become the staple for Christmas food baskets. Teachers and staff each donate a toy which provides the bulk of the gifts.
