Christmas for Needy

Home > News and Events

The City of Echo and Echo Kiwanis would like to thank all those who donated labor, cash, presents for children, and commodities to the annual Christmas Basket Program for Needy Families in Echo.

As usual the community exhibited its generosity and giving spirit. Over $1300 was donated as well as double that amount in items for the giving tree and food for baskets. 33 food baskets were distributed and 11 families received gifts from the Giving Tree.

Giving Tree donors are individuals who took tags from the Giving Tree and purchased presents for those children. Volunteers are those who helped with preparing food baskets, wrapping presents, and/or delivering Giving Tree Gifts and Food Baskets. Our thanks to Bryon Zumwalt and Stanfield Police for helping with deliveries.
