Donations and Fundraising
ECHO Meals on Wheels does not receive any government funding. We rely on fundraising and generous donations. We appreciate all donations, large and small! Every dollar helps.
As a self-supporting organization, donations are necessary to purchase food, supplies, and maintain our kitchen. Every penny goes toward our mission. Volunteers give of their time and are never paid to help. We want to be able to feed every single homebound person who needs our help. Going hungry in our communities is unacceptable.
Fundraising can be fun! Our fundraisers are a great help in receiving donations to keep ECHO running, and we have a few every year, such as the pancake breakfast, and Bunco fundraisers. What better way to support a wonderful cause like ECHO than through playing a fun game with friends, or eating pancakes! If you would like more information about our fundraisers, or would like to volunteer to help with one, please call us at (315) 487-2878.
We accept donations at any time, and they are always put to good use. You may want to consider asking an organization you are involved with, to make a donation to ECHO Meals on Wheels. Some companies will even match donations for a good cause like ECHO. If you aren’t sure, just ask.
Just as our volunteers who volunteer their time are amazed by the joy volunteering brings them, donating monetarily to Meals on Wheels will fill your heart with joy also. You can come in anytime to see what it is we do, and where your donation goes. We cannot easily express our gratefulness for our incredible donors. Every warm, nutritious meal that is delivered to a homebound community member is because of your generosity. From the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of our clients, we thank you. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to ECHO today. You will smile knowing because of your sacrificial gift, someone is enjoying a warm meal served with love.
