ECT is donating $20,000 this holiday season to local non-profits doing outstanding and essential work in our communities.

President & CEO Bobbi Westerby empowered 10 employees to each select a non-profit making a difference during these times. The employees represent two internal teams that have kept us safe and stable despite the twists and turns of 2020: ECT’s COVID-19 Primary Response Team and the quaranTEAM.

  • The Primary Response Team continues to manage ECT’s response to COVID-19 maintaining business continuity for clients, partners and coworkers while managing health & safety, employee resources and business risk related to the ongoing pandemic.
  • The quaranTEAM supports employees by providing a virtual community for employees to take care of themselves and each other during the pandemic. They do it by focusing on the positives, practicing empathy, and encouraging all of us to remember what really matters.

Take a moment to learn why we selected these causes. Happy Holidays from your friends at ECT!
