Please be sure to bring a wrapped gift ($20 value) for our gift exchange.
A guest speaker from ECHO of Brandon (Emergency Care Help Organization) will be present to briefly discuss their organization, as they are this year's Holiday Luncheon Beneficiary. The GMR will be making a charitable holiday contribution to ECHO.
ECHO of Brandon is a food pantry and clothing assistance source for residents of the area whom (or that) have experienced a recent emergency. This emergency food bank assists over 16,000 area residents, half of whom are children. Both Publix and Winn Dixie are corporate supporters of this organization.
We will also be collecting unwrapped toys or non perishable food items for ECHO to distribute at Christmas time. Other donations you may bring and we will transfer are gently used clothing, towels, blankets, and household items.
The top 3 items needed are: Peanut butter, jelly and canned meat (tuna, chicken are stew).
Thank you for your support of this mission.
There will be 3 great meal selections to choose from and great holiday goodies!
