Please be a part of our holiday tradition this year. ECHO is accepting cash and new, unwrapped toy donations for children in need in our community now through December 18 at the ECHO office for our Toy Distribution. Holiday wrapping paper and batteries for toys are also needed and can also be dropped off along with the toys. The Toy Distribution will be held on Friday, December 18 (Snow Day – Saturday, December 19) at St. John Lutheran Church, 302 N. Parker Dr. Preregistration is required from Monday, November 2 – Monday, December 14 at ECHO for participation in program. Participants need to bring in a photo ID, current utility bill, and proof of income for the entire household to sign up. Many volunteers are needed to make this distribution a success. If you would like to be a Santa’s helper or help with setting up “Santa’s Toy Shop,” please call Fran at (608) 754-5333 to schedule a time.
