The Peebles department store in Tappahannock has chosen the

 

Essex County Homeless Organization E.C.H.O. to benefit from its bi-

 

annual Community Counts program called “30 Days of Giving.”

 

The 2017 spring campaign which will run through April 30th, will give

 

Peebles customers in Tappahannock the opportunity in helping

 

E.C.H.O. provide safe, warm overnight accommodations to the

 

homeless population of the Middle Peninsula and the Northern Neck

 

region.

 

Store Manager Tony Adams said Peebles locations in more than 25

 

states have raised about $3 million dollars for 850 plus organizations

 

since the program began.

 

Tony stated that “We’ve donated to the WRAR Christmas Wishes, the

 

Northern Neck Foodbank, and several others, but E.C.H.O. really

 

impressed us with what they’re trying to do to help local homeless

 

people find shelter during the winter.”

The Peebles, 30 Days of Giving runs from April 1st to April 30th, 2017.
