Volunteer Spotlight: Leo Sanchez

Energy Advisor Leo Sanchez gives back to his community both on and off the clock. As an energy advisor, he helps customers save money on their energy bill. And as a dedicated volunteer for La Posada, Leo gives a helping hand to the community’s less fortunate.

Leo has volunteered for La Posada for over 17 years. The Twin Falls area non-profit provides a wide range of services including immigration assistance, housing support, food pantry, tax preparation/support and domestic violence counseling. During the holidays, La Posada prepares gift baskets for people in need.

La Posada’s director, Sister Rosie, is a personal acquaintance of Leo and asked him to join the board – a decision that has helped feed his desire to give back. Leo says serving on the board and helping with the ministry has been the most fulfilling part of his work at La Posada.

As a son of immigrants, Leo feels extremely fortunate to have found a successful career and fulfilling life in Idaho. It’s important to Leo that he pay that fortune forward.

When he’s not volunteering at La Posada, Leo donates his time to the Rotary Club, the CSI Foundation Board and Gooding Community Action. He is also volunteers his time as a board member with the North Canyon Medical Center.

Leo feels volunteering is not only good for the community, but it also sets an important example for our children – his daughter became a Rotarian at 25!
