Port of Vancouver’s Community Fund awards $5,000 to 3 organizations

The Columbian

The Port of Vancouver has announced the recipients for its 2020 Community Fund. The fund is intended to help projects that spur economic development, workforce training and tourism, according to a press release from the port. The fund’s inaugural year is 2020, and it is intended to become an annual program.

Three winners will receive a total of $5,000:

• Partners in Careers will receive $1,000 to pay for transportation to the organization’s worksite tours. The tours give high school students on spring break a chance to visit businesses to learn about career and training opportunities.

• The Clark College Foundation will receive $1,000 to support its International Day activities. The annual event celebrates international cultural and educational exchange.

• The Vancouver Public Schools Career and Technical Education program will receive $3,000 to help purchase tools, uniforms and gas cards for high school students participating in the Apartment and Maintenance Technicians training program, which teaches plumbing and electrical skills.
