    In the spirit of the holidays and the community, members and friends of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce stepped up to provide winter outerwear to area residents in need.

    The Chamber’s winter outerwear campaign aided area residents served by ECHO and Koinonia. ECHO is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to assisting people in need, provides temporary or emergency assistance, including food, clothing, household items and financial support to about 1,000 families in Springfield and Burke each year. Koinonia is a faith-based organization, called to support adults and children in the Franconia/Kingstowne area and help meet challenges of daily living by providing food, clothing, learning and emergency financial assistance to qualified clients regardless of beliefs.

    Eighteen area businesses and organizations served as collection locations in November and December. As boxes filled, dedicated volunteers from ECHO and Koinonia retrieved items and prepared them for distribution to people in need in our community.

    The collection locations accepted winter outerwear, including winter hats, scarves and gloves for all ages, children’s coats and blankets.

    On behalf of the Chamber’s community affairs committee, THANK YOU to all who donated and to our 2016 host locations:
