Wearing Pink for a Cause

Waterbury Public Schools employees presented a check for $4,646.25 from a “Pink Out” day to St. Mary’s Hospital. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, employees were invited to wear pink on Friday, October 28th, and to donate to the hospital’s The Women for Women organization, which provides free mammograms for women who are unable to afford one.
