Asnuntuck Community College’s Foundation will be recognizing The Antonacci Family Foundation for Charitable Giving’s recent donation with the naming of the College’s Tower Lobby mezzanine and bridge area in their honor.

The Antonacci Family, owners of USA Hauling & Recycling, have through their Foundation, committed to make a $20,000 donation, over the next four years, to the College’s Foundation. Formed in 1994, the family’s foundation is committed to supporting causes and organizations in the towns where their employees live and work. The Foundation’s donation was in honor of Asnuntuck Community College’s Capital Campaign. “The Antonacci Foundation chose Asnuntuck’s Foundation as a beneficiary because there is a need for quality, affordable, community college education and Asnuntuck addresses that need”, says Frank M. Antonacci, Chief Operating Officer for USA Hauling and Recycling, Inc. He continued, “This college develops the local community and educates the workforce of the future through applicable and tangible classes.”

“Asnuntuck is very appreciative of the generous gift from the Antonacci Family Foundation for Charitable Giving,” says Dr. James Lombella, President of Asnuntuck Community College. “It is gifts such as this, which was made to the Capital Campaign, which enables the college to offer students an affordable and far-reaching education.”

Antonacci added, “Potential donors, especially those located within the area, have so much to gain from donating to Asnuntuck’s Foundation because it is the graduates who will live and work in the community.”
