Over 90 Whittlesey team members across Connecticut and Western Massachusetts celebrated Community Day, an annual day of service representing the firm’s year-round commitment to giving back to local communities. For the past twelve years, hundreds of Whittlesey volunteers have put aside their daily work to partake in various projects ranging from painting classrooms to building homes.
This year, the firm focused on efforts related to environmental sustainability. Teams joined the Bushnell Park Foundation and the United Way of Greater New Haven to plant community gardens, weed, and lay mulch. Also, alongside ReGreen Springfield, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services, and Springfield Forestry, team members planted a pollinator garden in Forest Park.
“As community members for over 60 years, we care deeply about our neighbors and the environment where we live and work,” said Drew Andrews, CEO and Managing Partner at Whittlesey. “Our commitment to service is rooted deeply in the fabric of our firm, which is why we sponsor several community-driven events throughout the year. Working with many incredible nonprofit organizations across the region for the past several decades has been a privilege. I am proud of the impact our team has continued to make by working collectively to give back.”
