On Monday, January 8th, Tony Pomilla (center), Co-Chair ECHO’s Business Relations Committee, was happy to accept a $5,000 donation from Paul Sheehy (left) and Russ Zakeri (right), Managing Partner of Sheehy Volkswagen-Subaru of Springfield.  ECHO is grateful to Sheehy Volkswagen-Subaru for it’s continued support of ECHO over the last few years. 

If your New Year’s resolutions include using some of your time to make your community a better place to live, consider volunteering at ECHO.  You can learn more about volunteer possibilities under “Volunteer Opportunities.”  It takes many kinds of tasks to make ECHO operate successfully.  Some volunteers work directly with clients, while some work only with donations, and some care for our building and grounds.  Some volunteers work as mentors and tutors at local schools.  Time commitments vary, with some people working weekly while others come in only one or two evenings a month, or even work on temporary projects such as packing school supplies for our Back-to-School program.  Potential volunteers can visit to see how ECHO works before making a commitment.  If you are interested, e-mail volunteercoordinator@echo-inc.org.
