Other Ways to Support

In addition to making a donation towards the operations of the Early Childhood Collaborative of Southington or helping us to spread the word about our work to others in the community, here are other ways you can support the ECCS.

If interested, you can contact Joanne Kelleher, the ECCS Director at southingtonearlychildhood@gmail.com or 860-877-4049 (C).

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Serve on Board of Directors. We are especially looking for members with expertise/experience in the medical field, legal field, sales, marketing, event planning or have good connections in town. 
  • Volunteer with computer skills who can help maintain contact lists and databases. 
  • Volunteers who can assist with staffing events

Wish List:

  • Video projector (portable) with HDMI cable/converter for use at workshops. 
  • In-kind printing/copying services or use of a large commercial copier to print flyers and handouts for workshops. 
  • Gift cards to grocery stores for refreshments and supplies for our events. 
  • Gift cards for Staples for office supplies and printing. 

Staples Classroom Rewards Program:

Do you shop at Staples? The ECCS is enrolled in their Classroom Rewards program we will get 5% back in rewards through 9/15/2019.
All you need to do is enter your order/receipt info at https://www.staples.com/classroomrewards/parent.

When you go to the Parents page to enter the receipt, in the Town field, DO NOT search by zip code. You need start typing “Southington” and then pick the second option which doesn’t list the zip code. Then you can pick Early Childhood Collaborative of Southington and Joanne Kelleher from the lists. 

You can also email, text or DM the receipt info to us and we will enter it for you. If you shopped in-store, provide the 17 digit bar code and the total amount. If you shopped on-line, provide the order number and billing zip code.

The ECCS does not have a commercial copier/printer so we print all of our event handouts, certificates of attendance, flyers and posters at Staples.


Thank you for helping the ECCS.
