Oakville, CT – Chemical manufacturer and distributor Hubbard-Hall was awarded the United Way of Greater Waterbury’s Spirit of Excellence award at the charity’s annual Community Leaders Dinner.
The company was recognized for its outstanding employee-driven effort which succeeded in raising over $37,000 in addition to a generous $30,000 corporate gift. The Hubbard-Hall campaign demonstrated a 26% increase in average gifts over the previous year, with an impressive 58% employee participation rate across the board. Hubbard-Hall was also recognized for its eleven Leadership Donors on staff, as well as the company’s active participation in the annual Stock the Pantry food drive and other United Way efforts.
The award was accepted by Hubbard-Hall President and CEO Molly Kellogg. Kellogg reflected upon Hubbard-Hall’s origins in the Waterbury community, as well as her family’s longtime history with both the company and United Way. “If you’re going to give, give locally,” she said, recalling advice given by her father. “You have an obligation to support the community that you live in, and the community that you work in.” Kellogg went on to reaffirm the need to “give locally, give until it hurts, and give a hand up.”
