Food Relief Charity
Help a Neighbor in Need

Last summer, ECHOS’s staff received a call from an Etown school bus driver whose husband also drove a bus for the district. Unfortunately, they had experienced a house fire the year before and had used all of their savings to repair their home. Now they faced a problem: the husband needed expensive hearing aids; without them, he would be unable to keep his job. Our Case Manager was able to help by coordinating with a local Lancaster agency to provide a free hearing test and low-cost hearing aids for this family!
