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
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.
