Join PANV in Supporting ECHO and Operation Help a Hero This Holiday Season!

PANV has decided to coordinate support for holiday donations to two organizations: Ecumenical Community for Helping Others (ECHO) and Operation Help a Hero. (These organizations were selected based on responses to the PANV survey in August.) 

PANV is asking members to make donations (checks made payable directly to the organization) for Thanksgiving (ECHO) and Christmas (Operation Help a Hero).

The ECHO Thanksgiving Meal Program provides groceries and/or gift cards suitable for making a festive meal for families in need.

Operation Help a Hero connects communities with service members and provides real opportunities to make a difference in the lives of those who serve our country. Operation Help a Hero is an all-volunteer organization. Every cent contributed to Operation Help a Hero is used to serve our military community, and every project is based on real needs.

Please make checks payable to “ECHO” and/or “Operation Help a Hero” and mail to PANV, P.O. Box 222421, Chantilly, VA 20153.

Instead of mailing, you may also give your check directly to a PANV Board Member. Please mail donations by October 17, 2020 (PANV Annual Meeting).

You can also donate directly online at
