Thank You Lori for a Job Well Done

Lori Oberlander

In May of last year, Lori Oberlander began serving ECHHO as interim Executive Director. During the months that followed, up until her resignation in December because of a full time job offer, her dedication and determination to generate revenue for ECHHO was much appreciated. Her grant writing and fund raising skills succeeded in providing ECHHO with a much needed financial boost. Her appeals to businesses and individuals were well received and the generosity of the community came through when we needed it. Her last appeal to the community as Executive Director of ECHHO was very labor intenstive, involving the help of several volunteers who addressed, stamped, stuffed and mailed over one thousand five hundred appeal letters. The hard work resulted in over $8,000.00 in donations! Thank you Lori for your hard work, and we wish you success in your new job. We will miss you!

The New Year offers new opportunities and challenges

As we begin a new year, the demand for ECHHO’s services continues to grow, along with an increasing need for more volunteers and financial support. We all want to see our neighbors in need living with greater dignity and independence. Together, we can make that possible. If you know of anyone who would benefit from tbe satisfaction and fulfillment that being a volunteer provides, please let them know that the community needs them.
