Landscaping Anyone?

Enjoy working outdoors? Looking to volunteer in the community? Combine those interests by helping ECHO with mowing, trimming, and general landscaping duties. ECHO is looking for a number of folks to help keep our landscaping neat and tidy, as a group, or working solo. If you are interested, please e-mail volunteercoordinator@echo-inc.org to get details.

ECHO’s Food Pantry Needs Paper Bags!

ECHO’s Food Pantry is currently in need of brown paper grocery bags! We use them instead of plastic bags because they stand upright on rolling carts as volunteers fill them with canned and boxed food from the shelves. Paper bags are essential to the way volunteers organize and distribute food. Please think of asking for “paper” the next time you shop and tuck those bags into your donations for ECHO.

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.
