WATERBURY, Conn. – On Friday, Feb. 17, Webster Bank received special recognition from the United Way of Central & Northeastern Connecticut for 75 years of inspired philanthropy, volunteerism and commitment. Webster was also a finalist for the “Best Of” Awards in the Best Campaign in a Large Company.
The annual ceremony recognizes organizations and their campaign coordinators, volunteer committees and employees for their outstanding participation. Last year's Webster employee community campaign raised a record-setting $1.2 million in support of organizations across the company's service area.
“Congratulations to all the companies nominated and who support United Way. It's our belief at Webster and a longstanding practice of our employees to give of ourselves in the communities we serve. Our Webster bankers should be very proud of this special recognition as it serves as yet another example of how our employees really make the difference,” said Diana Pagliarini, who chaired last year's campaign.
