MILL HALL — Lisa Harvey, CMHS transition coordinator at Central Mountain High School, put in a request and Harbor Freight fulfilled it… and more.

Harvey was the recipient of a $250 gift card to purchase an industrial service cart at the local Mill Hall store. The cart will be used for the food pantry at Central Mountain High School.

“This will make unloading donations and shopping trips so much easier. It will also help with distribution,” said Harvey.

The CMHS food pantry was created in 2017 and prepares weekend backpacks for students and their families. Each backpack, at a minimum contains three meals for each day over the weekend. CMHS transition students, under the direction of Harvey, are learning skills by shopping, unloading, organizing, keeping inventory and preparing the backpacks for more than 30 students.

Auto Mechanics teacher Ryan Broughton will use the remainder of the balance on the card to purchase tools and supplies for his classroom at KCSD Career and Technology.

“Harbor Freight supports education and we are very happy to be able to help the food pantry and the auto mechanics classes,” said Dave Gruendler, store manager.
