Battery manufacturer Duracell is donating 100 pieces of equipment and supplies, including copiers, printers and “carts spilling over with toner cartridges” to Lancaster county schools from its local battery plant, according to a district news release.
The donation was presented by Duracell HR manager Bruce Barre and employees with families who work in the district to the schools.
The timing of the donation coincides with South Carolina school districts eliminating jobs, scaling back programmes and becoming increasingly reliant on private sources of support.
Lancaster county schools Superintendent Gene Moore commented: “We are so fortunate that Duracell believes in our public schools and find ways to help our schools meet the needs of students and teachers. We will certainly use the supplies Duracell donated to make a difference for our students.”
