We consider our Community Outreach to be our Hallmark.
Giving back to Our Community and encouraging others to do the same is key to a strong community.

Ekim's Community Outreach - The SPOTLIGHT!

Ekim's Community Outreach Page will feature our Spotlight organization.  The Spotlight will showcase an organization with whom we have set a goal to raise a specific amount of money for a specific need that will directly benefit Lakelanders. One percent of Ekim's Place's sales will go explicitly to this Spotlight.  Once we have fulfilled the amount, we will highlight the next organization. 

Our first Spotlight will be the Free Teacher Market through Polk Education Foundation. This organization allows teachers to stop by *FREE OF CHARGE* to pick-up fundamental supplies. Join us in donating today to help purchase these urgently needed supplies!
