The Landing Bar & Grill fundraises every holiday season for ECHO (Emergency Care Help Organization) of Brandon, Florida, a local non-profit whose mission is to end hunger in Southeastern Hillsborough County. One of the major events The Landing hosts for ECHO of Brandon is an Annual Christmas Party in which guests donate food, clothes and toys to help provide assistance to those families in crisis. The festive event also includes a bake sale and raffle to help raise much needed funds for ECHO.
ECHO of Brandon helps families in crisis by providing emergency food, clothing, life-stabilizing programs and resources such as Free GED classes and Money Matters workshops. Since its inception 30 years ago, ECHO has provided assistance to a quarter million local residents. To learn more about ECHO of Brandon, visit their website.
