"The Port Ludlow Village Council (PLVC) Wellness Committee's Education Resource Center Group wishes to inform you that medical equipment may be borrowed free of charge from ECHHO (Ecumenical Christian Helping Hands Organization). ECHHO is a non-profit organization formed in 1997 and is supported by donations from a myriad of sources.
Small items such as wheeelchairs, crutches, walkers, canes, toilet risers, commodes, etc. are maintained in Port Ludlow. Call Darlene at 360-437-7692 or E-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org to borrow an item in time of need.
Both large and small items such as hospital beds, electric scooters, lift chairs, exercise equipment, bath seats, etc. are based in Port Townsend. They may be obtained by calling Wilma at 360-379-3246 (9-4PM, M-F) or E-mailing her at email@example.com.
If you care to donate medical items, they would be very much appreciated!
ECHHO Members understand your urgent need and many of these items are delivered to your home by volunteers.
Many Port Ludlow residents have utilized this free service through the years.
Please retain this information in a handy place as YOU may want to borrow medical equipment in the future!
You may find the ECHHO brochure in the Port Ludlow Wellness Resources Notebook now maintained in the lobby of both clubs." (Submitted by Peggy L. Schafran, Member, Resource Center Group, 30/7/2011)
