A grant totaling $10,000 was recently awarded to Millersville University’s Lancaster Partnership Program (LPP), a corporate partnership designed to help Lancaster’s socioeconomically disadvantaged students successfully pursue a college career.
“The Campbell Soup Foundation aims to empower youth to take charge and become local leaders in building a healthy community,” said Amanda Bauman, program director of the Campbell Soup Foundation. “We are proud to support an initiative like the Lancaster Partnership Program, which has consistently provided higher education opportunities for youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity in the Lancaster region.”
The Campbell Soup Foundation selects organizations to receive grant funding based on specific criterion, and aims to support the development of a healthy community by focusing its giving on community wellbeing, youth empowerment and economic sustainability programming.
With more than 10 corporate sponsors, the LPP at Millersville University works similarly towards that mission by aiding students in-need, both financially and academically, towards a brighter educational future. LPP has been serving Lancaster City students since 1988 and offers summer job opportunities, internships, employment interviews upon graduation, workshops on how to apply for college and choose a major, as well as tips to improve study habits through time management and goal setting.
