Gold star' given to social service organization
STERLING - Sterling Selectmen Chairman Robert Cutler will be the first one to say not everyone gets a warm reception when they come before the board.
Wednesday night, Cutler gave Jodi Breidel, North County Regional Director of WHEAT Community Connections a"gold star."
Breidel was there to outline the services WHEAT, which is now a part of the United Way of Tri-County, provides to residents in several local communities, including Sterling.
The annual assessment that the town pays is $3,000, Breidel said, and there are also volunteers from the community who help with programs.
In the year since Breidel has returned to WHEAT - after being the executive director for several years, then leaving for the corporate world - the programs have consolidated from three Clinton locations to one - 272 High St. With everyone under one roof, it is easier to redirect services, she said. For example, if perishable items are donated to the pantry, some can be served in the cafe that day. read more
