  1. Wonderful! Thank-you Mr. Steves!

    Also thank-you Joe M. And the Board of the ECA as well as all the volunteers!

    This is not the first local generous action as Rick Steves and Anne Steves also donated over a million a few years ago for Pathways for Women, a very successful womens’ shelter.

    Awesome!
