For almost 60 years, The Echo Shop has transformed donations of clothing and household goods into changed lives in our community. Our all-volunteer staff is passionate about the differences we make in the lives of hungry and homeless children and adults, and victims of abuse, addiction, and disease. In a typical year, we are able to grant $100,000 to agencies in the Bay Area of CA.
Due to the pandemic, we have been closed since March 16. We have had no sales income since then, but our monthly bills of over $6,000 per month are quickly depleting our cash. Because we have no paid employees, we are not eligible for forgivable loans from the Small Business Association. We are appealing to our volunteers, loyal customers and friends to help us survive until we can reopen. Even a small donation will help.
Thank you and please stay safe and healthy!
