Volunteers Support Education in Essex for Middlesex United Way Days of Caring

Employees from Tower Laboratories LTD volunteered on Oct. 3 at Essex Elementary School in Centerbrook as part of Middlesex United Way Day of Caring

ESSEX – Middlesex United Way’s annual Days of Caring are being held the first two weeks of October, and a team of employees from Tower Laboratories LTD volunteered on Oct. 3 at Essex Elementary School in Centerbrook.

Middlesex United Way Day of Caring is an annual event that matches groups of volunteers from local companies with meaningful volunteer projects that advance the common good. Middlesex United Way’s focus areas are education, income, health, and housing; this year, Day of Caring projects support education by connecting companies to local schools.

Tower Laboratories employees worked with a group of fifth and sixth graders from the Green Team after-school club to plant flowers at the school.

Over several days, teams are volunteering at nine schools in six Middlesex County towns. Volunteers are doing storytelling, reading, and activities with children in the classroom; speaking about their careers; and improving the learning environment for children through gardening, mural, and other beautification projects.
Teams of volunteers from local companies donate their time to these volunteer projects. Participating companies include ATD Wireless Zone, Brown & Brown of CT, Carlson & Dumeer LLC, Citizen’s Bank, Clean Choice Commercial Cleaning LLC, GKN Aerospace Services Structures Corp, Liberty Bank, Middlesex Hospital, Rolls Royce Naval Marine, Inc, Russell Library, TD Bank, Tower Laboratories LTD, and Wesleyan University.
Middlesex United Way is a locally based organization dedicated to strengthening lives, helping people, and improving community conditions in the fifteen towns in Middlesex County.
