2021 Giving Project
Once again, ECT embarked on a holiday project to give back to the communities where we live, work and play.

Ten ECT employees were nominated by their peers to each select a local nonprofit doing outstanding and essential work in their hometowns. These ten individuals were chosen because of their passion about their communities and service, their strong work performance, and for being star performers behind the scenes here at ECT.

Take a moment to learn how our best and brightest gave back $10,000 in charitable donations to support causes near to their hearts.

Happy Holidays from your friends at ECT!
