Adelberg celebrates United Way milestone

Greenwich United Way marked a special anniversary in May as president and CEO Stuart Adelberg completed his 25th year with the organization.

Current and immediate past board chairs Virginia Meyer and Lori Jackson, respectively, presented him with a commemorative gift and tributes from present and past directors at the May 23 board meeting.

Mr. Adelberg joined the United Way in 1987. Among the posts he has held are assistant director of communications, agency coordinator and executive vice president. He became president and CEO in 1999.

Founded in 1933 as the Greenwich Community Chest and Council, the Greenwich United Way celebrates its 80th anniversary later this year. It has been located for nearly all of those years at the intersection of Putnam Avenue and Lafayette Court. From the start it has been committed to targeting needs, mobilizing communities and changing lives.

In addition to its work identifying and meeting health and human service needs, the United Way is the largest non-governmental source of funding for local health and human service programs.

Gifts to the annual community-wide fund-raising campaign are the most effective and efficient ways to support critically needed local services that strengthen children and families, support seniors, foster self-sufficiency and assist individuals in crisis.
