Solar Panels Completed!

Thanks to ECHO’s partnership with must! charities, we now have new solar panels! Visit this webpage to learn more about how must! charities is strengthening ECHO’s ability to help our homeless population. This state-of-the-art solar panel project was installed by Solarponics in April and will save ECHO about $8,000 a year. The Solarponics bid included a discount that significantly reduced the total cost of the system.

An upcoming project is the laundry facility addition that will benefit both ECHO clients and create  long-term financial savings for the shelter.

California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) students provided a total of 3,200 hours of service to more than 40 nonprofits in SLO County as a part of Make A Difference Day. Their fabulous effort was awarded with a $10,000 grant for a charity of their choosing, and they picked ECHO. ECHO staff, volunteers and supporters thank you! These are the future leaders of our community!
