Some schools in Central Illinois are getting some much needed funding. It’s all part of PNC’s Bank Grow Up Great Early Childhood Funding Initiative.
The program funds hundreds of Pre-K classrooms as part of a new $5 million dollar grant. The grant seeks to provide teachers with greater classroom resources and experiences to inspire their students.
PNC officials say they are excited to help the community
“It was really important to us as a bank, to be able to make this commitment in our own communities and really come in here to help these teachers that have dedicated their lives to working with these kids,” said Brian Ray, Central Illinois Regional Manager of PNC
The program funded over $20 thousand across Central Illinois classrooms.
