Today I am attending the PNC Grow Up Great Advisory Council in Pittsburgh. In 2004, PNC adopted a corporate-wide program focusing resources on early childhood education to make a tremendous impact. Since then, PNC Grow Up Great has distributed more than $73 million in grants and worked with partners like Sesame Workshop® to develop rich educational materials for children, families and educators. PNC employees have also volunteered more than 410,000 hours to make this vision come true. To date, the program has served approximately 2 million children throughout 19 states and the District of Columbia.
I am looking forward to hearing the PNC Grow Up Great updates as well as a lively discussion on trending issues in early childhood education. I will be sharing this information with you next week. Have a great weekend.
