Amazon donates to Inland school districts

By on December 19, 2018

Amazon has donated $100,000 to five Inland Empire school districts, money that will be used to help family service programs.

The donations were announced recently during a gathering at Amazon’s ONT2 facility in San Bernardino, according to a statement.

The money will help students participate in extracurricular activities, get to and from school and have access to clothing, school supplies and other accessories. Each district also received a decorated Christmas tree it can display or give to a needy family.

More than 30,000 students in Riverside and San Bernardino counties are expected to be helped by the donations. The five school districts were not identified.

“The holidays can be a difficult time for some children and families, and we were touched to provide this fun and magical experience to the districts,” said Catie Hydeman, Amazon’s regional operations director, in the statement. “We are proud to give back to the communities where our associates live and work.”
