PPG Donates Nearly $19,000 for Milwaukee-Area Educational Programs



Published May 2, 2014
The PPG Industries Foundation has donated nearly $19,000 to four Milwaukee-area organizations for educational programs. Each grant was made on behalf of PPG’s coatings manufacturing facility in Oak Creek, Wis., and represents PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) commitment to supporting local organizations that provide needed resources in the community.

The recent grants helped:

    Milwaukee Area Technical College provide manufacturing-related education programs;
    Oak Creek Public Library Foundation enrich the library’s children and young adult department;
    Zoological Society of Milwaukee provide education and enrichment programs; and
    Oak Creek-Franklin Joint School District send female middle-school students to an engineering summer camp.

“We hope this funding helps each of these organizations continue to offer unique educational opportunities in the Oak Creek and Greater Milwaukee areas and expand their valued efforts,” said Jack Marshall, plant manager at PPG Oak Creek. “PPG is pleased to support programs that directly impact its communities, especially by exposing young people to different learning experiences and helping train tomorrow’s workforce.”

Established in 1951, the PPG Industries Foundation demonstrates the values of PPG Industries by enhancing the quality of life in communities where the company has a presence. Interests of the foundation, in order of priority, are education, human services, culture and arts, and civic and community affairs. PPG also supports charitable causes by encouraging employees’ volunteerism and board service with nonprofit organizations. For more information, visit www.ppgfoundation.com.
