O’Brien, a longtime donor of the school, is an active member of an advisory board of business leaders that assist the college. He also facilitated an internship program for students at his Ontario factory. A new collaborative of Inland Empire leaders — working with one of the world’s largest nonprofit think tanks — is developing a plan that hopefully will open doors to the middle-class for residents without college degrees. A strategy study was released last week by a group called Inland Economic Growth & Opportunity. Contributors come from a variety of sectors. No details on how or when this initiative would be implemented were released. The report outlines several goals, including advanced job training that, it is hoped, will move workers into what is called “promising jobs.” The Brookings Institute, which worked with IEGO on the project, describes these jobs as paying at least $18 per hour with benefits. Ultimately, the goal is to create a well-trained workforce that will attract more employers, including those in the technology fields, to the Inland area, advocates say. The logistics industry, which has become a key provider of jobs for Inland workers, is a top target. Others job categories being looked at are manufacturing, emissions control, solar energy, cybersecurity and information technology. Paul Granillo, president and CEO of the Inland Empire Economic Partnership, said local logistics operators already have relationships with schools in the area, “But the Brookings Institute says we need to elevate this to a much higher level,” Granillo said. He added that a team from Georgia Tech, considered the university with one of the best logistics programs in the country, is consulting on this project. IEGO has a steering committee of about 50 people, and Brookings Institute will continue to provide national support. It is funded by both Inland counties, UC Riverside, CSU San Bernardino,  Loma Linda University, the University of Redlands, the James Irvine Foundation and the Golden State Opportunity Foundation. Commerce grant for UCR The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration has awarded a $2.5 million grant to UC Riverside, part of the federal government’s Opportunity Zone program. The grant will go to support  UCR’s Inland Empire Entrepreneurial Life Sciences Incubator and allow the incubator to buy equipment, according to a statement from the federal agency. The incubator ideally will support research for new ideas that would lead to venture capital funding and new jobs for the area. Riverside is located within a Tax Cuts and Jobs Act-designated Opportunity Zone, part of the Trump administration’s 2017 plan to give tax incentives to investors in economically stressed communities. Palm Desert warehouse sold A 32,250-square-foot warehouse in Palm Desert has been sold for $3.6 million, according to NAI Capital, which represented the seller in the investment deal.

Charities, with help from golfing legend Dave Stockton, hosted its annual Jack H. Brown Heroes Challenge. The event was held a month ago at the Redlands Country Club. As part of the event, Stater Bros. Charities donated $110,000 to local nonprofits, including the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, California Highway Patrol’s Explorer Program and Redlands Emergency Services Academy. Eight Medal of Honor recipients and 17 golf professionals attended the event. HomeAid fundraiser is April 26 The annual HomeAid Inland Empire Trap Shoot and Builder Chili Cookoff fundraising event will be Friday, April 26 at the Redlands Shooting Park. HomeAid, a nonprofit arm of the region’s two chapters of the Building Industry Association, has helped build housing and has offered community outreach for the region’s homeless since 1990. In that time, the charity has helped more than 39,000 people. Actor Joe Mantegna will be the special guest at this event. Register online at homeaidie.org. The deadline is today, April 22.
