Let the Miracle of Christmas
Fill your Heart with Warmth and Love

Madonna and Child

As we enjoy this holiday season, let us reflect upon how ECHHO has been able to change the lives of so many in need. Based upon our beliefs and faith, we make manifest the highest ideals that people can strive for – kindness towards the less fortunate, compassion for those who suffer, understanding and sympathy for those who need help.

We would like to share with you a few of the notes we have received from our grateful clients. Their words bring to life ECHHO’s accomplishments as we strive to fulfill the purpose for which ECHHO was created. As encouraging as the statistics are, it is even more wonderful to hear from these people who are speaking from their hearts.

May the blessings of this season be with you and your family throughout the coming year and may our clients continue to be blessed through the devotion of everyone involved with ECHHO.

Three notes from our clients
Dear ECHHO,

Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to so many in the community. The love and kindness that you share with those in need does not go unnoticed. God Bless you.

Merry Christmas
Chris

Dear ECHHO,

Volunteers, please accept my token, but heartfelt gratitude for the indispensable medical transport to Kitsap County, several times a year. By lifting this stress, you have lengthened my functional life! Have a blessed holiday!

Dear ECHHO,

Many blessings.
