Whittlesey & Hadley staffers volunteered at nine local non-
profit organizations on Friday, June 29 for the firm's fourth
annual Community Day. This year, employees of the firm
and its subsidiary, The Technology Group, spread out
throughout the greater Hartford and Middletown area and
lent their time and talents to community-based organiza-
tions providing a wide spectrum of services to the home-
less, families and children, inner city youth, the rehabilitation
of ex-offenders, and the disabled.
Teams of volunteers helped out the Rushford Center in Mid-
dletown, Eddy Shelter in Middletown, Wheeler Clinic in Pla-
inville, New Britain YMCA, The Bridge Family Center in West
Hartford, Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation in Bloomfield, and
Hartford-based Watkinson House, Hartford House, and Our
Piece of the Pie.
A tradition that continues to grow, Whittlesey & Hadley
transformed its company summer outing in 2009 to a day
of community service and has since served more than 20
different organizations throughout the region.
"We serve the financial needs of more than 300 nonprofits in
the region," said Managing Partner
Drew Andrews. "Com-
munity Day is an opportunity for us to make a direct impact
on our clients' missions. Our teams' commitment to giving
back has made this day a tradition at Whittlesey & Hadley."
Whittlesey & Hadley volunteers gather on the front steps of The Connection's Eddy Center Shelter, where they spent the morning planting flowers and
painting the cafeteria in the residential facility for the homeless and those transitioning from the community justice system. Pictured are (front row left to
