Successful Fundraiser

Our annual ECHPS spaghetti fundraiser last week was a success. Thank you so much to all the individuals and businesses who purchased meals!

We are grateful for those who cooked, served hundreds of meals, and helped out behind the scenes. Our board members and other members and friends really came through for us.
