On Thursday, June 17th, 2021, Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) investors joined together at ECHO - Emergency Care Help Organization to celebrate their business expansion in Riverview. Leading the festivities was ECHO Executive Director Eleanor Saunders with the help of South County Center Director Steven McKinnon and Director Diane Horncastle. Also, Dr. Stacy White from the Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners delivered an Accommodation to ECHO on behalf of their efforts during the pandemic. Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, attendees engaged in business networking and were given a tour of the facility.
ECHO has been assisting residents of the Greater Riverview community for over 25 years. In order to better serve the community, ECHO opened a physical location in Riverview in 2019. The new business expansion will help ECHO to connect even more people to life-stabilizing programs and resources such as job-search assistance, financial literacy assistance, job coaching, GED instruction in English and Spanish and a variety of workshops.
There was a proclamation delivered by 2019 Honorary Mayor of Riverview Bill Andrew, Tessera of Brandon. He recognized June 17th, 2021 to be ECHO - Emergency Care Help Organization Day and asked attendees to duly note the occasion by remembering that at ECHO they are bridging the gap between crisis and stability.
