PPL Corporation recently demonstrated its commitment to corporate citizenship with a $30,000 donation to the Danville Child Development Center in Montour County near Danville, Pa.

PPL’s donation, made through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program, will go toward the center’s prekindergarten scholarship fund.

“These scholarships help provide high quality child care to those who normally can’t afford it, and in an area that does not have many high quality, affordable child care programs available,” said Teri MacBride, regional community relations director.

The center has been an Educational Improvement Tax Credit pre-K scholarship organization since 2010. The center is accredited by the National Association of Young Children and is a Keystone Stars program participant. It serves between 400 and 500 children each year.

“We’ve had a close relationship with the Danville Child Development Center for four years now,” MacBride said. “The center provides excellent child care to the local community, and is exactly the kind of organization that PPL wants to support.”
