Whittlesey & Hadley in Hartford hosted
its seventh annual Community Day in
July. This year employees of the firm
and its subsidiary, The Technology
Group, volunteered at community-
based organizations primarily focused
on providing academic, behavioral,
and human services to the disabled
and families and children.
Nearly half of the volunteers, a team
of 30, painted classrooms and office
space at Our Piece of the Pie (OPP) at
20-28 Sargeant Street in Hartford. The
nonprofit's mission is to help urban youth
become economically independent
adults through relationship-centered
programs in academics, youth
development, and workforce readiness.
The painted space included a portion
of OPPortunity Academy, formerly
Opportunity High School, which helps
struggling students graduate from high
school ready for college and careers.
"This year we were proud to play a
role in OPP's transition to OPPortunity
Academy and helping them to open
the new school on time this fall," said
Drew Andrews, managing partner
of Whittlesey & Hadley. "Community
Day affords our team members a
broad range of rewarding experiences
that allow them to give back to area
nonprofits and our clients."
Other team members volunteered
at the Boys & Girls Club Fam-
ily Center in Springfield, Catho-
lic Charities in Hartford, Watkinson
School in Hartford, and The Bridge
Family Center in West Hartford.
Since 2009, Whittlesey & Hadley's
Community Day has given back to
more than 35 nonprofit organizations
throughout the region.
