The United Way of Greater Waterbury recently honored employees of the Southbury Training School (STS) as a Top 25 United Way Contributor in the state for the 2010-2011 campaign years. The staff raised over $19,000 in donations through the State Employees Campaign for Charitable Giving, making them one of the leading United Way contributors in Connecticut.
STS Administrative Assistant Ms. Karen Spiegel who ran the campaign for STS accepted the award from United Way Workplace Campaign Manager Brian Amero.
“In these economic times, it is amazing to think that my colleagues at STS were able to be so generous,” said Ms. Spiegel.  “Each year we are always hopeful to match the previous year’s donations, but this year went way above our expectations.”
