PPG Foundation Invests $20,000 in Alabama Organizations


Funding supports educational programs in aerospace community

PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that the PPG Foundation recently invested
$20,000 in two Alabama organizations in support of educational programs.
The grants were made on behalf of PPG's aerospace facility in
Huntsville, Alabama.

The foundation provided $15,000 to The
Schools Foundation
in support of its Summer Adventures In Learning
(SAIL) program, which reaches 500 low-income students in the school
districts of Huntsville, Madison County and Madison City. SAIL combats
summer learning loss in math and reading in a camp-like atmosphere.

A $5,000 grant to the University
of Alabama Huntsville Foundation
will provide scholarships for
underprivileged girls to attend Girls Science and Engineering Day. This
one-day program is designed to pique interest in science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM).

"PPG is proud to support educational programs that provide our young
people with the knowledge and skills they need to pursue careers in
advanced manufacturing," said Tom Meyer, PPG plant manager, Huntsville.
