ECCO FOOD DRIVE IN SEASIDE FARMS
Every year Seaside Farms organizes a food drive for East Cooper Community Outreach. ECCO offers basic needs … food, clothing, emergency financial help, household furnishings through St. Vincent de Paul. ECCO also offer dental and medical assistance, plus empowerment programs. Empowerment programs help folks with employment, offer 2 week courses for women plus conduct classes to learn how to find continuing education courses and how to budget their money.
Seaside Farms volunteers leave every household a brown bag to fill with nonperishable foods asking the neighbors to bring their filled bag to our community pool house by a certain date. This past weekend those same volunteers collected and delivered over 1,100 pounds of food … Someone left a $50 bill in their bag of food. It was a fun project with lots of community pride!
