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.

The recent grants helped Milwaukee Area Technical College to provide manufacturing-related education programs; Oak Creek Public Library Foundation to enrich the library’s children and young adult department; Zoological Society of Milwaukee to provide education and enrichment programs; and Oak Creek-Franklin Joint School District to 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.”
