Crafton Hills College will be able to provide increased opportunities to veterans and students in the first responder programs after receiving a grant from Bank of America.

“We want to thank Bank of America for the $10,000 grant they awarded Crafton Hills College. The funds will be used to increase services in the Veterans Resource Center and to help students in the EMT, paramedic and fire programs,” said Michelle Riggs, director of community relations and resource development.

Crafton Hills College was one of 11 local agencies to receive funding from Bank of America.

“Access to basic needs and career development resources can make a major difference in easing the civilian transition for veterans,” said Al Arguello, Inland Empire market president for Bank of America. “Bank of America is committed to working with organizations that put those who have served on the path to economic self-sufficiency.”

“It’s local support like this that benefit our students and ensure their academic success,” said Sam Irwin, past president of the CHC Foundation. “Our goal is to make an impact in our community by helping students graduate.”

Bank of America made the check presentations at its San Bernardino branch during a short ceremony on Tuesday, June 19.
