ECS Employee and Board Message

Posted by griffithd on December 23, 2017 at 8:05 AM

Our families traditional note at this time of year is:

In this season of Peace, we pray for Peace.

In this season of Joy may you find it.

In this season of Hope may you have it and give it.

To that, I add

I wish you a Happy Hanukkah, Joyful Kwanzaa,

I acknowledge and pay respects to Eid al-Fitr,

moreover, Merry Christmas.

Regardless of your tradition, and we honor all, I thank you for your service to the individuals we serve at ECS and your dedication to the work that we do together

to “Challenge Poverty.” One story. A young boy was in tears at one of our OST Christmas parties. When asked why he told one of our colleagues that he was told by his Mom not to open his present until Christmas day because it was the only present he would get. In his excitement, he had opened it along with his friends, and now he was worried. Your colleague took the young man and rewrapped his gift and made his world a little more comfortable.

You all make a substantial lift every day, but it is the thousands of small moments that make your and our work significant to the people we serve. I am honored to work with you, and I wish you and your family and loved ones, peace in this season of peace, joy, and my thanks that in this season of hope you do so much to bring it to the people we serve.

In my tradition, the birth of Jesus marks the greatest gift we ever receive and the challenge to extend that gift to the world at large. That gift is at the core of our work. Peace, Joy, and Hope.

You all have my most profound appreciation, respect and thanks.

Head Coach
