Strut Your Stuffing – Turkey Trot 2016
Thanksgiving Day 5K
We hope you’ll join us for this fun run to benefit Project ECHO’s mission of helping the homeless. This event is for people of all ages and abilities. Some run and some walk. Many bring their families, some come alone and others run in teams. We always have a few travelers, most live locally, and at least a few are of no fixed address but they call Project ECHO home for the time being. However and wherever we come from, we do it because we believe in Project ECHO, we do it because it’s a ton of fun and some of us just might do it for the guilt-free pleasure of multiple Thanksgiving dinners. (No judgments here!)
Want to join our Turkey Trot team? Whether you’re interested in the planning committee, helping with registration or just looking for something meaningful to do with your family, there’s plenty of volunteer opportunities available for all ages. Call or email for more information 410-535-0044 ext.4 or 443-684-0987 or ECHOdevelopment@comcast.net

Calvert’s Community Resource Fair – October 15th
This is a fun, free, family-friendly event that enables you to discover all the amazing resources available within your community. Service providers and organizations will get together in one location, just for you. There will be free entertainment with a live DJ and plenty of giveaways, door prizes and a raffle. Don’t leave the kids at home because this event is just as much for them as it is for you. The Superheroes of Southern Maryland will be there along with The Balloon Nerd and Calvert’s own comedian and illusionist Reggie Rice. Did we mention the DJ? Did we mention the free stuff? Mark your calendars, you don’t want to miss out on this one. Oct. 15th, 10am – 2pm, Prince Frederick Volunteer Rescue Squad at 755 Solomons Island Rd.

We are shouting out Thank You! to the United Way and all of the hard working volunteers that came to Project ECHO for the 22nd annual Day of Caring. You all did a fantastic job cleaning and organizing the storage rooms and cleaning up the yard and flower beds. We’re so grateful to each of you! To our residents who also participated and helped us make our home clean and beautiful, you guys rock!

Back to School
Our kids have gone back to school! Yay! We want to give a big thank you to Mt. Harmony United Methodist Church and their Backpack Ministry and Girls Club Camp for putting together and delivering these brand new backpacks complete with supplies. We thank you for your time and effort in helping our kids prepare for their first day of school.
Not all donors and donations get photographed but we want to say thank you to every organization and individual whose contributions are helping our kids start this school year with all the tools they need to be successful. We’ve been fortunate in that we’re also able to provide backpacks and supplies to kids whose families have moved out of ECHO House. We couldn’t do this alone so thank you to each and every one of our generous friends and supporters.
Macy’s Shop For A Cause
Thank you to everyone who participated in Macy’s Shop For A Cause campaign. With your support we raised almost $100 and received quite a few necessary household items. Thank you all! We enjoyed being able to give you a gift for giving us a gift and we’re looking forward to doing this again.
The Magic of Giving Back
Have you found the MAGIC of giving back? From now through August 28th when you donate one of the following items we’ll give you a gift for giving us a gift. How Magic is that?! Here’s our top 5 most needed household items: Trash bags: 13 gallon & 55 gallon, laundry detergent, all-purpose cleaner, toilet paper and paper towels. Help us to find, share and spread this MAGIC all around. Thank you!
