ECCO has partnered with Operation Fir and BOGO Christmas Trees again this year to provide a Christmas tree and the decorations to those who are in financial distress as part of our 9th Annual Adopt a Family program. 

Operation Fir was created in 2012 by Josh and Aubrey Atkinson of Mount Pleasant. They have grown their project from delivering 10 trees in the first year, to now brightening the holidays for 100 low-income households. Please support the dedicated efforts of Operation Fir by sponsoring this fundraising campaign. 

You can also help by visiting BOGO Christmas Trees company in Mount Pleasant on 1735 North Highway 17 to purchase your tree and they will give one back to an ECCO client!



Give Hope.

Every donation helps and your gift of any size will bring hope to those in need during a critical time of year.   

$60 will sponsor one full package for an ECCO client family – ensuring they receive a fresh Christmas tree, decorated with festive ornaments and lights.

$25 will help with decorations and ornaments.

$10 will support our efforts
