DOVER, DE – The PPG Foundation recently donated $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware to expand science, technology, engineering, art and math education programs. The donation was made on behalf of PPG’s architectural coatings site in Dover, Delaware, which includes a manufacturing plant and distribution center.
“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware is grateful for PPG’s commitment to supporting our science, technology, engineering, art and math programming,” said George Krupanski, President and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware. “These hands-on learning opportunities will enhance our members’ knowledge and skills related to math, arts and science, ultimately increasing their educational, career and professional opportunities in engineering- and technology-related fields.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware is part of a nationwide movement whose mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need the clubs most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens, and to prepare them for successful careers. The PPG Foundation grant will fund development of engaging and enriching educational programs that introduce children to technology and network skills, Internet safety, robotics, electronics and mechanical software.
“We recognize that the Boys & Girls Clubs organization makes a difference in the lives of thousands of youth in our community, and we’re happy that PPG and the PPG Foundation can help them expand and build more science, technology, engineering, art and math programs to engage young people’s interest in these fields,” said Neal Nicastro, PPG Plant Manager, Dover.
