Eaton donates $15,000 to benefit Great Lakes Science Center
CLEVELAND, OH ... Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced today it has donated $15,000 to benefit the Great Lakes Science Center (GLSC). The Center's primary purpose is to be a science, environment and technology resource offering education for families and visitors in the area with a strong emphasis on the Great Lakes region.
The funds will be used to support educational programs for students in the Cleveland area. Support at the requested level will help enable the Science Center to develop new programming, deliver quality educational experiences, and serve as a partner to the formal education community in Northeast Ohio.
Importantly, support of Science Center education programs will help fund what more than 60,000 students will see and do while visiting the Center in the coming school year. This includes innovative signature and traveling exhibits, breathtaking educational OMNIMAX films, hands-on demonstrations and programs and a host of other activities.
"Eaton has a strong commitment to supporting science education," said Linda Abraham-Silver, President and Executive Director of the Great Lakes Science Center. "This generous gift is another example of their dedication to giving back to the community."
Last year Eaton donated $10,000 to the Science Center and between 2001 and 2004 their contributions totaled $51,000.
"Eaton is proud to be associated with the Great Lakes Science Center," said Billie Rawot, Eaton's vice president and controller and GLSC treasurer. "We are committed to enriching education and supporting the communities in which we do business."
