Inland Empire United Way has named Ontario-Montclair School District as the 2013 February Agency of the Month for its recent efforts to assist the community.
Over the past several years, Inland Empire United Way has partnered with Ontario-Montclair School District to help disadvantaged children and families in the district to receive much needed resources.
For several years, OMSD employees have supported IEUW through the annual employee giving campaign. This year, OMSD re-launched the campaign to benefit not only IEUW, but also the newly formed OMSD Foundation and the Promise Scholars program.
OMSD employees from the 33 school sites, administrative offices and other service departments raised more than $28,000, representing an increase of $15,000 from the previous year’s campaign.
OMSD serves the cities of Ontario, Montclair, portions of Upland, and unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County. The District is the third largest elementary district in the State.
The Ontario Firefighters Association and the Ontario Police Officers Association will participate in the 3rd annual Chaffey High School softball challenge on Friday.

“The police department and the fire department are the best and always thinking of the community and their hearts are always in the activities in fundraiser, their always in a giving mode,” Councilman Jim Bowman.
Fire Chief Floyd Clark said all the proceeds from the event goes toward the two high school teams’ programs.
“It’s a good time for fun and real benefit for the community,” Clark said.
