Power management company Eaton today announced its support and
contribution of $15,000 to Hillside,
Inc., a private, non-profit, Atlanta-based organization providing
treatment and education to severely emotionally disturbed children and
their families. The donation comes from Eaton's Cooper
Lighting Division and the Eaton Charitable Fund, which will be used

"The Eaton Charitable Fund actively supports programs that improve the
quality of life in communities where the company operates," said Mark
Eubank, president, Cooper Lighting Division. "We are proud of Eaton's
civic involvement at Hillside and in Georgia, as well as all of the
global communities where we work. Supporting Hillside and assisting
children in need continue to be a priority for our employees."
Eaton's local Peachtree City employees will also volunteer with the
organization, helping with landscaping and improvement projects on the
facility campus. The new kitchen and dining facility will provide a much
needed common area for greater interaction with the patients and more
opportunities for volunteering. Additionally, the new space will satisfy
operational efficiencies and sustainable goals.
Hillside strives to offer the best care available to mentally ill and\or
severely emotionally disturbed children and adolescents ages seven to
17. The organization is a state certified Psychiatric Residential
Treatment Facility (PRTF) and has expanded programs to offer Therapeutic
