First County Bank boosts United Way

The First County Bank Foundation, a long-standing supporter of the Greenwich United Way, has once again shown its commitment to the organization with a $2,500 contribution.

The money will be a part of the United Way’s 2011-2012 fund raising campaign and will be used to “promote self sufficiency and community and economic development.”

This United Way field of service helps people who are economically disadvantaged or physically or mentally challenged, to become as self-sufficient or independent as possible. This support comes in many forms, including educational programs, support services, counseling, and mentoring and management services.

 

It also provides for prevention and treatment assistance for those dealing with mental illness, substance abuse, a variety of physical ailments, and other issues affecting the mental health and physical well-being of individuals.

Several local non-profit agencies partner with the United Way on this including Abilis, Community Centers Inc., Literacy Volunteers, Neighbor to Neighbor, Shelter for the Homeless, and Pathways. During the fiscal year just ended, the Greenwich United Way invested $513,674 in programs “Promoting Self Sufficiency and Community & Economic Development.”

The foundation’s gift will be able to help these efforts continue according to Greenwich United Way President Stuart Adelberg.

“The First County Bank Foundation has been an extraordinary partner with our United Way, helping us to continue our work targeting local needs, mobilizing the community to develop solutions, and funding critical programs that truly change lives,” Mr. Adelberg said.
