OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We serve the chronically ill, the homebound, those temporarily indisposed due to accident or surgery, and seniors who need assistance. This program provides a way for people to live and stay in their own homes who otherwise would not be able to manage. There is no age requirement or means testing.
We are dedicated to serving Camillus, Marcellus, Onondaga Hill, Geddes, Lakeland, Solvay, Warners, and Westvale.
As a self-supported organization, relying only on donations and volunteers, our loving service provides hot meals and bagged lunches to our community in need. Our meals are economically priced just to cover the cost of food. We believe serving others builds a strong community, and often blesses those who volunteer even more than those who receive.
If you have a heart for serving and have often wondered where that may be for you, please consider ECHO Meals on Wheels. No one should go hungry, especially in our own community. The smiles and appreciation you will receive will warm your heart. Our volunteers look forward to their various tasks and find them to be a joy—not work.
ECHO was founded in 1969 by volunteers from many churches and stands for Ecumenical Community Helping Others. And that is exactly who we are. We are all in this together. Anything helps, whether it is your time or a monetary donation. We appreciate our volunteers. Together we can make sure no one is left in their home, believing there is no one who cares that they are hungry. These are our loved ones, our neighbors, our people, our community.
