NECO believes in the classic aphorism, Think Globally, Act Locally. We are planning major health initiatives across the world, but we are also seeking small and meaningful ways to assist those in need closer to home.
Last month, NECO donated hygiene products, clothing and small gifts of jewelry to Hope House Ministries in Port Jefferson, New York. Hope House is a wonderful organization that is committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive and competent care for the poor, the marginal and the wounded among us. They specifically work with young people in crisis as well as pregnant women and mothers with children, providing support and most importantly, hope.
Hope House – www.HHM.org - felt that part of NECO's gift would be better utilized by a partner organization, Mercy Center Ministries – www.MercyCenterMinistries.org – who accepted the items and sent NECO a very gracious thank you letter.
NECO is very happy to be a support of these two great local organizations. We encourage you to check them out and be inspired by their success stories.
