Eaton Donates More Than $700,000 to Support Education, the Arts, and Minority Development in the Greater Cleveland Area

Last month, Eaton announced it would be donating $722,000 in "Powering Communities Grants" to improve the quality of life in communities where Eaton employees live and work.

"During these challenging economic times, Eaton is sensitive to the ever-increasing need to support local agencies whose prime mission is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families in our area," said William B. Doggett, senior vice president of public and community affairs at Eaton.

The donations will be used to enhance various programs and organizations such as education, the arts, and minority development in the Greater Cleveland Area.
