With more than 30 years of experience, we have developed a proven formula for delivering services. From our grassroots inception to our statewide reach today, we have provided free assistance to nearly 2,000 families in need.
2,775 bags of groceries were delivered to families by volunteers in our four Regions.
345 birthday bags were sent to ECF kids and their siblings.
327 holiday gift wishes were filled for ECF kids and their siblings, worth more than $49,000.
We distributed $6,580 of emergency funding to families in dire financial situations (over $4,500 more than in 2015), helping with expenses such as rent, phone service, medical equipment, gas and tolls, utility bills to prevent shut-off of services, and reimbursement for meals for parents who are with their child in the hospital.
Dedicated volunteers logged in an amazing 3,819 hours of invaluable help to the organization and ECF kids and families. We can’t do it without you!
Funding for the year was well diversified:
Religious Groups & Service Clubs: 8%
