On May 12, 2020, the Waterbury-based business networking organization, ProfNet, Inc., celebrating its 20 years in operation, began donating the group’s weekly morning meeting breakfasts to the ICU personnel at both Waterbury and St. Mary’s Hospitals via Bagel Exchange. For four weeks, breakfast sandwiches will be delivered with sincere gratitude from the 30 members of the professional networking partners group.

Bruce Brayton, ProfNet member, and owner of Brayton Associates commented, “Our members meet every Thursday morning, and since we are now meeting via Zoom, we wanted to express our sincere admiration and gratitude to the front-line essential workers at Waterbury’s two hospitals. Community service throughout the Greater Waterbury region has long been a mission of our organization, so we hope these breakfast sandwiches are providing a source of nutrition and relief to the many individuals who are working so very hard for the health and well-being of the entire community.”
