Charitable Mission Statement
ECRS is committed to being an active part of our community, and our world. We continuously strive to be a part of the solution. The annual community impact statement reports that, in 2016, ECRS donated $60,288.92 to nonprofit organizations. 98% of total contributions were donated to youth-serving/youth-focused organizations ranging from local to global service.
Areas of Impact
In the early 2000’s, ECRS became involved with the Maison Fortune Orphanage Foundation in Hinche, Haiti. A non-profit orphanage, Maison Fortune provides housing and education to over 250 Haitian children. ECRS currently provides a monthly contribution which covers a significant portion of operating costs for the orphanage.
ECRS, a privately held company, works to reach youth on a local level through a number of opportunities. ECRS strives to not only be a leader of charitable contributions but also to set a precedence of community service. From donating the company parking lot on Appalachian State University football game days, to leading scout troops after school, to helping out at local sports competitions, ECRS employees have donated hundreds of hours to supporting the youth of Watauga County.
