Eolia Christian Community Outreach, ECCO, has been serving the Eolia, KY community since 1987 and has been a part of the Meridzo family sine 2021.

At this time ECCO is serving the Eolia and surrounding communities as a thrift store and community food pantry. We hope to add other ministries soon and will expand this ministry as God directs. The Thrift Store is open Wednesdays and Friday from 10am to 2pm and every second Monday of the month from 10am to 4pm. Food Box distribution is done on the second Monday of each month.
