At United Steel we recognize our roots, and are proud to be able to give back to the communities who supported us in our early years. We are pleased to continue our support of our corporate charity, Brain Injury Association of Connecticut (www.biact.org
), and are proud to have sponsored the inaugural “Walk for Thought” in Hartford, Connecticut in 2005. In the eleven years since its inception +$650,000 has been raised for this worthy cause.
In 2014, United Steel hosted “Steel Day”
– an annual event sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction. Customers, architects, prospects, and students from area technical high schools and colleges were invited for a guided tour of our state-of-the-art facility for structural steel and miscellaneous metals fabrication. Attendees were able to see how raw steel is received, inspected, fabricated, finished and shipped.
Since 2010, we have donated more than $75,000 to local and national non-profit organizations. Our other recent donations and endeavors include:
▪ Steel frame fabrication for the new Kidnetic Clubhouse Children’s Museum in Shelton, Conn., for mobile exhibit of a kid-sized F4U Corsair WWII fighter plane.
▪ Labor and materials for welding, electrical repairs and the rebuilding of “Holiday Light Fantasia” displays after massive storm damage (to benefit the Channel 3 Kids’ Camp).
▪ Decorative fence to protect a tree and plaque at Buckley Elementary School in Manchester, Conn., planted in memory of PFC Keith Miller, a Vietnam solider who did not return home.
▪ 445 lbs. of goods to the St. Mary’s Food Bank (November 2015).
