|By Einar Jensen, Risk Reduction Coordinator
Did you know Evergreen Christian Outreach (EChO) assisted over 20% of our community in 2023? That assistance included mental health referrals, substance abuse referrals, firewood, rent assistance, sheltering under-sheltered individuals and families, and offering food and other products at its food pantry.
We support EChO because of its commitment to risk reduction in our community. EChO’s personnel are great partners and neighbors.
This month our support will take the form of leading a Health & Hygiene Product Drive for the EChO Food Pantry. We’d like your help, too. Please bring any of the following products to our Drive on February 24 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Fire Station #2 in Bergen Park (1802 Bergen Parkway).
• Adult Diapers
• Child Diapers
• Laundry Soap
When you arrive, you will drive into the fire station where EFR personnel will gather your donations.
As we did with the October Food Drive and December Ham Drive, together we can help make a difference for EChO and many more families and individuals in our great mountain community.
