Christmas Giving

Home > News and Events

The City of Echo and Echo Boosters would like to thank all those who donated labor, cash, and presents for children to the annual Giving Tree of Christmas gifts for needy children in the community. The city was not involved in the Christmas Food Basket program or deliveries this year. The Kiwanis operated and offered these by themselves through Chester’s Food Pantry.

As usual the community exhibited its generosity and giving spirit. As well as donating gifts and cash for the Giving Tree, several individuals anonymously donated $900 toward utility bills. Giving Tree donations consisted of generous people who took tags from the Giving Tree and purchased presents for those children. Volunteers are those who helped with wrapping presents and/or delivering Giving Tree gifts.

Additional thanks to Bryon Zumwalt and Stanfield Police and Echo Volunteer Firemen for helping with deliveries.
