From The Journal Times.com:
"RACINE – Continuing
its long legacy of investing in its hometown, SC Johnson on Saturday
announced major contributions to aid public safety and literacy efforts
in Racine and its suburbs.
"SC Johnson announced Saturday that it
has committed to purchase a new bookmobile for the Racine Public
Library, which is expected to cost an estimated $250,000, and will also
provide its third annual $50,000 donation to support the library’s
Battle of the Books, a literature contest for 4th- and 5th-grade
students in Racine County.
"The company also said Saturday it has
committed to support about 40 hours per week of additional officer
presence for a six-year period at the Lakeside Community-Oriented
Policing (COP) House in Mount Pleasant. SC Johnson will also purchase 54
new breathing apparatuses for the South Shore Fire Department, which
serves Mount Pleasant and Sturtevant, including SC Johnson’s Waxdale
manufacturing complex on Willow Road."
