Font size: [A] [A] [A]

Thursday, Aug 5 was a success in the eyes of shoppers and volunteers as dozens of shoppers flooded the unique ECHO store on Ann Street in Stroudsburg. The store features fine, gently worn clothing sold at extremely reasonable prices.  For just $5, shoppers were able to “fill a bag." 

Barb Bloom, a Cresco resident and a teacher, displayed the 100th bag sold at ECHO. She notes, “We are very fortunate with the ability to support good causes in this community and I’m so happy to support the mission of Women’s Resources of Monroe County.”

Shop at ECHO and support an end to domestic and sexual violence. Shop Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The bag sale will continue until mid August. Contact Women's Resources of Monroe County Inc. at P.O. Box 645, Delaware Water Gap 18327 or call (570) 424-2093.
