From The Lowell Sun – The development of UTEC’s new woodworking facility received assistance in the form of a $ 100,000 grant recently provided to the organization by Eastern Bank.

Eastern Bank’s investment is part of UTEC’s growth campaign to raise funds in the pursuit of job opportunities and pathways for young adults in the Merrimack Valley returning from incarceration or leaving gang activity, according to a UTEC press release.

The release states Eastern Bank’s grant will be used to renovate the 28,500- square- foot space on Church Street that will be the future home of UTEC’s woodworking facility. The funding will also support professional staff for high- skill training, and advance youth trainings as they begin to expand the range of products made at the facility and the number of jobs offered to young adults.
