City Councilman Allan Domb (D-at large) last week made donations to five public schools, including two in the Northeast.

Domb donates his salary to city public schools.

Last week in City Hall, he presented $2,500 to John Hancock Elementary School, 3700 Morrell Ave.

Hancock will be using the $2,500 donation as matching funds to receive a $25,000 Neubauer Grant. These funds will be used to create a Makerspace, which will have new Chromebooks, projector, whiteboards, STEM education programs, 3-D printer, tools and safety equipment.

The school is led by principal William Griffin and vice principals Andrea Miller and Khloe Williams.

Domb also donated almost $2,500 to Watson Comly Elementary School, 1001 Byberry Road in Somerton.

Principal Kate Sylvester and vice principal Matt Grill will be using the funds to add new equipment to the Makerspace to expand their Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) opportunities. They’ve purchased 20 cameras, a tripod and STEAM-oriented class materials.

Domb has a satellite office at 3294 Red Lion Road, located within the district office of state Rep. Mike Driscoll.

A member of Domb’s staff is in the office every Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ••
