ECCC delivers baskets, readies for CD release

On March 5, over 40 Elder Care Community Council (ECCC) volunteers packed 140 laundry baskets with household items donated from many generous people. The volunteers also delivered the baskets to the 60 homebound elders on ECCC’s list in Eastpoint and Apalachicola.

The Forgotten Coast Parrot Head club members showed up to help out and then to deliver 20 baskets to Carrabelle seniors. Their other baskets were picked up at the Holy Family Senior Center in Apalachicola. 

“It was an amazing group effort that brought smiles to the faces of 140 households in Franklin County,” said Betsy Nofziger, a member of the ECCC board of directors. 

Karen Stead, volunteer, hand knitted dishcloths for the baskets and has already agreed to do this again for next year’s baskets.

On Thursday, March 24 at 6 p.m. at Holy Family Senior Center, there will be a CD release and fundraiser concert for new album Something Light As Light by singer-songwriters Riely O”Connor and Molly B. Moon.

Apalachicola winter residents and active in the local music scene, the duo recorded their second CD late last year in northern Indiana

“We chose to benefit the ECCC because being a volunteer there with the lunch delivery crew, I see the great work they do firsthand,” said Moon. “And we’re neighbors; They operate out of the Historic Holy Family Senior Center, which is right down the street from our house on the north side.”
