Last year for the annual Christmas Drive, we raised over $21K in conjunction with several vendors and subcontractors. Just this week, the school's Principal brought us this giant key signed (front & back) by every student and faculty member. It is now proudly displayed in the conference room of the Florida division office. Thank you, Long Branch Elementary School, for this thoughtful gesture.
We are thankful for everyone who came together and made this drive such a success. We want to say, “THANK YOU!” to our generous team members and Sponsors. All of this would not have been possible without you. We are proud to share the incredible results below.

This years Flounder Tournament exceeded everyone’s expectations! Thank you to all the sponsors for making the $85,000 payout to the Boys and Girls Club possible. That is over $20,000 more than last year! I know this year had many hurdles that almost made it not happen, but thanks to you all and your generosity, we were given the opportunity to pull off another great event that will benefit the kids of a few local Boys & Girls Clubs!
This past holiday season the employees of ECR helped to make the season brighter for so many children across the US. Over the course of a few weeks we raised a grand total of $13,149 for the Seton Youth Shelter, Adopt-A-Student Christmas Drive, the Marine Toys-For-Tots Foundation, and for all the children of Long Branch Elementary School located in Jacksonville, FL. This couldn't have been possible without the generosity of our ECR family.
