CRANBERRY TWP — Students from North Catholic High School accepted a $12,000 check on behalf of area Butler County families on Thursday.
The donation was made by Waste Management to the Bridge Educational Foundation. The program provides financial assistance to students through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit, or EITC. North Catholic is one of several Butler County schools to receive the funding and will receive a portion of the money. EITC allows business owners to divert state tax dollars to support schools by providing student scholarships and financial aid.
