RCDI and DICF "Deliver the Goods" for ECCO

ECCO (East Cooper Community Outreach) received a donation in the amount of $2,000 ($1000 from Daniel Island Rotary Club and a matching contribution of $1000 from Daniel Island Community Fund). “For 30 years, ECCO has been serving local families in both generational and situational poverty,” said Stephanie Kelley, ECCO’s executive director. “I believe the COVID-19 pandemic will be the ‘natural disaster’ that shapes ECCO’s vision and mission as we move into our next 30 years.” (See Zach Giroux’s article in the Moultrie News on March 24, 2020) Typically ECCO provides meals to 375-400 households per month (80 – 100 per week). The week of March 23rd – 27th, ECCO supplied 339 pre packaged food orders to feed 309 families, in which 43% of these were new orders. Rotarians have also personally delivered a large quantity of canned goods to help replenish the outflow.
