During this “Trick or Treat” season, Terri Fischer, Public Sector Representative for Waste Management, Inc, brought a $3000.00 “treat” to the Norwin School District Community Foundation to support STEM programs for Norwin students.
This generous contribution was made possible by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Education Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC.) EITC allows eligible businesses to earn tax credits for contributions to Scholarship Organizations and/or Educational Improvement Organizations and/or Pre-K Scholarship Organizations. Norwin School District Community Foundation (NSDCF) is an approved Educational Improvement Organization whose mission is to support Norwin School District programs that enrich and enhance student learning.
According to John Hambrose, Community Relations Manager for Waste Management, “Waste Management of Pennsylvania is dedicated to environmental protection, education and supporting the communities where we operate. While making this important contribution to today’s future leaders, we are protecting our environment and your community by providing waste disposal and recycling services.”
Dr. Jack Boylan, NSDCF President, emphasized that “the EITC program is a great way for local businesses to target a portion of their tax obligation directly to organizations that focus on providing quality educational opportunities for students at all age levels. Our Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting Norwin schools and students, is extremely pleased that Waste Management has become a partner in the education of Norwin’s students.”
Dr. Jeff Taylor, Superintendent of Norwin School District, appreciates the financial support.
“I commend Waste Management and other companies that have supported the School District and the Foundation,” Dr. Taylor said. “Their support for student success is something we can all admire and deeply appreciate. We gratefully acknowledge and thank them for this gift to support STEM education programs at Norwin School District.”
