ECHOS 61 E. Washington Street, Suite 110
Elizabethtown, PA 17022.
A tax receipt will be provided.
When you give to ECHOS, 100% of your donation goes to help individuals and families through an unexpected crisis. A monetary gift is the easiest way to support our clients, or you can donate items.
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!
