(ECCO) East Cooper Community Outreach

In an effort to help fight COVID19 and to do our part to support the local community of Charleston SC, Palmetto Group donated $1500 to East Cooper Community Outreach. We funded Christmas for 3 local families. In doing so we purchased gifts for 8 children.

ABOUT ECCO

Founded as an emergency relief effort in 1989 after the devastation from Hurricane Hugo, East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO) has since grown into a permanent resource for the community in need with three main program areas: Basic Needs, Health Services and Empowerment. Thousands of families a year receive emergency assistance for food, clothing, household furnishings, financial aid. They provide access to dental care, medical care, prescription assistance, counseling, and educational opportunities like financial literacy classes, computer skills training, and job readiness workshops. These services are all enhanced through personal interaction with staff who provide individualized support for each client, ongoing case management, and emphasize accountability and achievement.
