Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced a Powering Communities grant of $10,000 to Junior Achievement Guelph-Wellington last week.
Funds will support the business and money-management programs offered to students in grades 3 to 12.
The company’s grants” help improve the quality of life in communities where Eaton employees live and work.
Ramona Ostrander, executive director of the local Junior Achievement, said, “As the Guelph and area business communities continue to unite with [us] in impacting youth success, we welcome this show of confidence and support from Eaton Corporation.”
