Waste Management has donated $15,000 to the Pennsbury Education Foundation. The funds will go toward improvements in the classroom.

“We appreciate the clear generosity of Waste Management,” said PEF Board President, Annette Young. “These donated funds will go a long way in supporting new initiatives and technologies that improve upon the teaching and learning occurring in the Pennsbury schools.”

This donation is made through the Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program. The EITC offers tax credits to businesses which financial contribute to scholarship organizations or education improvement.

Bob Jones, Waste Management senior district manager, said it is the company’s responsibility to give back to the community.

“Waste Management and Pennsbury School District share a mutually beneficial business and education partnership,” said Mr. Jones. “For more than 25 years, Waste Management has been supporting Pennsbury’s educational and environmental programs as well as awarding scholarships to graduating seniors.”
