AREAWIDE – Webster Bank received the Partner in Business Award from CCARC in New Britain, an organization that provides a wide variety of services to people with disabilities. Webster bankers were awarded this honor on May 5 at CCARC’s annual awards dinner for turning a one-day volunteer project into a 365-day-a-year event.

Last October, members of Webster’s Continuous Improvement group, the Project Management Office, and the Business Solutions Partner group spent a day performing various chores at CCARC. This effort was part of Webster’s “80 Days of Giving” employee volunteer initiative, which earned CCARC a $1,000 grant from Webster. However, the experience had such a profound impact on the group that six members returned to CCARC headquarters in April to help with a spring clean-up effort.

The evolving relationship between the bankers and the nonprofit has also led to a series of meetings at which David Hadd, senior vice president, director Continuous Improvement, and Gabe Rinaldi, senior vice president, Project Management Office, and senior leaders at CCARC have discussed and implemented strategies to streamline the nonprofit’s day-to-day operations.

Webster Bank is a leading regional bank serving businesses and consumers in the Northeast.
