Seasonal Programs

Easter Baskets

ECO offers two Easter Programs each year for families living in the Edgerton School district. ECO participants can register to receive a ham basket complete with all the fixings for a traditional Easter meal through the ECO Food Pantry. Easter Baskets for children are provided for children ages 0-12. Parents can register to receive a basket for their children through the ECO office.

Back to School

Students residing in the Edgerton School District can register to receive school supplies through ECO’s Backpack Program. Registration begins July 1st each year and parents are encouraged to register their students as early as possible. This program is made possible through ECO’s partnership with the Dave Pierce American Family Insurance Agency who promotes the annual “Stuff the Bus” campaign, support from our local churches, and the support of many individual donors.

Gifts for Kids

Giving Tree

The Giving Tree Program is a gift program at Christmas time that focuses on providing gifts for children 5th grade -12th grade who reside in the Edgerton School District. Sign ups begin in October. Parents provide ECO staff with a list of two needed items and two wanted items for their children. These wish tags are anonymously coded and distributed at our local churches. Shoppers fulfill the requested items and return them wrapped to their church for distribution by ECO. Tags are also available at Edgerton Community Outreach.

The Adopt a Family Program is an additional gift program at Christmas time to assist families who need an extra helping hand during the holidays. Community donors are matched with a family in the Edgerton School District to ensure that they will enjoy a special holiday season. The Adopt a Family program is based on donor participation. If you are interested, contact us between October – December months.

Christmas Ham Baskets

ECO participants can register to receive a ham basket complete with all the fixings for a traditional Christmas meal through the ECO Food Pantry. Baskets usually consist of ham, fruit fluff salad ingredients, boxed or fresh potatoes, and green bean casserole.
