The Emergency Care Help Organization (ECHO) provides immediate relief in the forms of food, clothing and household items to those residents of Eastern Hillsborough County that have experienced a recent emergency. Bring a non-perishable food item and/or much needed toiletries to EHDC’s monthly meetings to donate to ECHO. You'll receive an extra door prize ticket for your donation.
All are welcome to attend EHDC meetings: members, non-members, Democrats, non-Democrats, East Hillsborough residents, non-East Hillsborough residents, etc... While we certainly encourage Democrats to become members of EHDC, non-membership should not stop you from attending our meetings!
Monthly meetings commence with a meet-and-greet during check-in. This is the best time to claim a seat and order food and drinks. Once in session, meeting agendas typically include: welcome of new members, guest attendees, and special guests; a brief discussion of club matters (past meeting minutes, club business, financials, etc.); a guest speaker and open discussion of topics; announcement of upcoming events; volunteer needs; and discussion of hot topics and upcoming legislation.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT MEETINGS
EHDC members represent democrats from all parts of eastern Hillsborough County, including but not limited to Brandon, Valrico, Riverview, Plant City, Dover, Lithia, Mango, and others.
SMALL GESTURE, BIG HELP
The EHDC generally meets on the second Tuesday of every month, unless otherwise posted. All of our meetings are on Zoom until further notice and you must RSVP thru Mobilize to get the information. The link to mobilize will be in the event on the calendar.
Meetings typically include guest speakers, open discussions on hot topics, event planning, and opportunities to support the Hillsborough County Democratic Executive Committee (HCDEC) and the campaigns of local democratic candidates.
MEETINGS & MEMBERSHIP
Annual membership dues are $25 per person, $35 per household and $10 for students.
