>We’re proud of Andrea

leave a comment »

>We were proud here at The Register Citizen last week to be honored for the newspaper’s contributions to the United Way and all it does for charitable causes here in Northwest Connecticut.
But prouder still were our feelings about Andrea Benedict, leader of the business office here at The Register Citizen and Foothills Trader.
She was honored with the United Way’s “People Who Inspire Us” award.
For years, Andrea has been the one-woman-band operating behind the scenes to coordinate The Register Citizen’s annual Warm the Children campaign.
Warm the Children has provided money for warm winter clothing for thousands of children from needy families in Northwest Connecticut over the years.
It’s one of the few charities out there that can boast zero administrative costs … meaning that every penny donated goes directly to these kids. That’s possible because Andrea does all the work!
So Andrea, we join the United Way in saying you inspire us! It was a bit of public recognition that is well-deserved.
