Staff Wellness

  • CARDS – Community groups & individuals make encouraging cards telling them how much we value what they do.
    • These can be dropped off at our community Staff Appreciation bag stuffing events in Sammamish & Snoqualmie that will be scheduled the week of November 8th. Location & times TBD shortly.
    • Alternate times & locations can be arranged if the community events don’t work for you
    • Or mail a card or 2 directly to Friends of Echo Glen; 704 228th Ave NE #204, Sammamish, WA 98074
  • NECK PILLOWS Sew rice-filled microwavable pillows to help staff relax. These will go with their appreciation gift bags and be used during the Spa Event

    • Size, shape or material are completely up to you.  Several DIY sites recommend around 5+” x 15-18″. And using brushed canvas, cotton ticking, or fleece is always cozy.  No synthetic fibers – they can melt in the microwave.
    • Various styled neck pillows will reflect the varied creativity of the community.

Directions for a simple neck pillow like the one in the photo:

  • Cut one rectangle about 6″ x 36″ out of fleece or other soft 100% cotton material (nothing with synthetic fibers that will melt in the microwave)
  • Fold in half with right side together
  • Sew together 2  2/3 sides leaving about a 2″ opening
  • Fill with rice about 2/3 full so it is comfortable to drape around the neck. (a funnel or funnel made of paper makes it less messy)
  • Optional – add a scented oil or herbs to rice
  • Attach a tag like this Downloadable PDF and write ‘made with love by…’ on the back.
