United Way recently received a $50,000 contribution from Huntington Bank to support the Success After 6 initiative at McGuffey Elementary School in Youngstown. William Shivers, president of Huntington Bank’s Mahoning Valley and Canton regions, and Sandy Upperman, regional marketing manager, presented the check. Success After 6 is in eight schools in Youngstown, Girard and Liberty. The early-childhood education initiative is focused on kindergarten to sixth-grade students. It provides tutoring, vision screenings, food pantries and family events. Additionally, it provides after-school programming with academic support and enrichment opportunities to 100 children in each school.
