C-PP Gets $3.2 Million Foundation Grant

       CORNING, NY (WENY) -- The Corning Incorporated Foundation once again swoops in to help the Corning-Painted Post School District.
     C-PP District leaders announced a grant of $3.2 million from the Foundation. The district was looking at a gap of that same amount in the current proposed budget.
      It's the fourth year in a row the Foundation has given a major grant to C-PP; from 2010 through this year, the amount totals $14.4 million.
       Superintendent Mike Ginalski says the donation will help the district save programs and staff, as they continue to finalize their budget.
