Giving Back

Hypothermia prevention week

"Giving Back"

The Virginia ECS-Ed team participated in Hypothermia Prevention Week once again this year, serving a hot breakfast to dozens of our community’s homeless.

Hypothermia Prevention Week is a collaborative initiative among Fairfax County’s government, non-profits, and faith communities to create ad-hoc shelters during the coldest months of the year. This helps supplement the often overcrowded shelters and ensure that no one suffers from hypothermia due to a lack of space. 

In addition to a place to escape the cold, a hot breakfast helps vulnerable people start the day off right and experience the care of their community. We were honored to help our neighbors for a few hours this week!

“I would like to express my happiness with ECS's superlative service.
Communications with the team at ECS have been so satisfying in terms
of the clear and prompt replies to all my enquiries. And the speed with
which we recently received that safety equipment truly stunned
the department. Everyone here is so impressed by the quality
and quickness of your communications and this delivery so soon is
amazing. You've got a great system! Great customer service!

“The service provided from ECS and Carolina was the single best
purchase experience this school year. Our location provides a bit
of a challenge for shipping purposes and I knew after the first
correspondence things were being handled with the utmost
attention to detail. Our shipment arrived quickly and all of the
boxes were carefully packed. This is the level of customer service
that sets the bar! Thank you again.

from acquisition to delivery point. Material has been received in a timely manner.
The collaborative partnership between Carolina Biological Company and Effective
Communication Strategies is the perfect strategy that benefits the end user.
