M&T Bank awarded $30,000 in funding to Sam Cannan, Chairman and Co-founder of the Veterans Watchmaker Initiative (VWI) during a visit to the Odessa campus on February 8.

The New Castle County-based school teaches disabled war veterans the skilled art of watchmaking. The program, which originated in the 1940s, was created to instruct veterans in a professional craftsmanship that is both profitable and in high demand.

“M&T Bank’s funding will help VWI’s ‘House our Veterans Project,’ that aims to provide rent-free housing for veteran students during their 16-month horology training program,” said Mr. Cannan, who conducted a tour of the facility and the future site of the student dormitory.

Accompanying Lambrow were three M&T Bank representatives who toured the school and met students.
