2014 Year End Holiday Fund Appeal -- A Great Success!

We wish to extend our sincere thanks to the hundreds of area residents (as well as many from out of state) who gave so generously to help ECHHO meet its operating expenses. Our 2014 Holiday Fund Raising Appeal was a great success, more so than in previous years. Why?...because with each passing year, more and more people learn about ECHHO's wonderful service and offer their compassionate support. People know that ECHHO is truly a gift to the community, everyday living up to its mission statement of helping those in need to continue living independently. We are looking forward to continued growth and success in this new year and long into the future - as long as the need is here, ECHHO will be here to help. Thanks again!




ECHHO Would Like to Thank the Following Churches,
Organizations and Individuals
for their Very Generous Financial Gifts.

First Presbyterian Church, Brinnon Community Church,
Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, Calvary Community Church,
Jefferson General Hospital, Olympic Area Agency on Aging,
Peninsula Cancer Center, Edith Grobe Foundation, SOS Printing,
Seven Cedars Casino, Edensaw Community Cancer Foundation,
and the many volunteers and care receivers too numerous to mention.




Volunteers Needed!

By their actions, ECHHO volunteers demonstrate their desire for the type of world they want this to be. A world in which the lives of the less fortunate are valued no less than the lives of the fortunate. A world in which no one is denied care based upon income or social status. A world in which living with dignity is not a privilege, right, or benefit enjoyed only by those with more advantages than most. If you share this vision and want to help make it a reality, please contact ECHHO to find out how you can help those in need. If you are already a volunteer and know of someone who might be interested in helping, please tell them about ECHHO!

We are eager to hear from interested folks and welcome inquiries Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm. We can be reached at (360) 379-3246.

Together, we are making a difference!
