Erie's General Electric Donates $30,000 to Early Education Program

Posted: Updated:
A local early education program campaign receives a big boost with help from employees of Erie’s General Electric.

This morning, leaders of union group, UE 506, presented a check for $30,000 to "Pre-K for PA." The money supports an investment in pre-k education for schools in the area with a vision that all 3-4 year-olds will have access to high quality education. Leaders say it takes partners like g-e and others to help make cause a reality.

"We're extremely thankful to the employees of GE for this contribution, and it really gives us the funding to continue to advocate how important this cause really is," said Nick Scott, Jr., co-chair of Pre-K for PA.

UE Local 506 has also pledged to collect signatures supporting pre-k education.
