PNC’s Grow Up Great initiative exemplifies how business can step in and make an educational difference in children’s early years. This year PNC celebrates the 15th anniversary of their Grow Up Great program, a bilingual initiative to help children from birth through age 5 prepare for success in school and in life. In 2004, PNC employees chose early education as the company’s philanthropic focus when investing in early childhood education did not have as much widespread support as it does today. To date, more than 5 million children across the country have been supported through PNC’s local grants and educational programming. In this episode, Tom Lamb, Senior Vice President of the PNC Financial Services Group and a CED Trustee, and Jim Hansen, Regional President of Eastern Carolinas for PNC Bank discuss how the program started, its impact on employees and plans for the future.
