General Motors says a strong community means a stronger company. With help from the GM Foundation, Saginaw Metal Castings Operations Assistant Plant Manager Ramon Franco said
four Saginaw area non-profits will benefit from $20,000 in grants. The foundation’s GM Community Grants program will donate nearly $2 million this year to non-profits in the 47 communities with GM plants.
The grants awarded Tuesday are going to Saginaw Valley State University’s STEM program, the United Way of Saginaw County, First Ward Community Services and the CAN Council – Great Lakes Bay Region.
UAW Local 668 President Harry Cripps says SVSU’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics curriculum provides employees with the need skills for G M to be competitive in today’s global economy.
The awards ceremony was part of Saginaw Metal Castings Operations’ employee appreciation day. A number of employees brought their classic cars to the facility on North Washington.
