When a young customer came in a couple of weeks ago and told us that his school was burning down we were shocked and like many people and businesses in our generous city we wanted to help but weren't sure how. We know how much of their own money teachers put into their classroom supplies and with the School of Education at UNBC were able to provide gift certificates for the teachers with a considerable discount to help them replenish their classroom supplies. As we were packing up we also realized that we had some surplus stock that would fit really nicely in some empty classrooms. The picture above shows a bit of what we were able to donate. We've got some fixtures and shelving headed their way too! The timing was perfect for us to be able to do this and it felt really good to be able to help the teachers and students in a practical way.
Being able to do these kinds of things has really made us feel better about the difficult decision to leave the Hart. Thank you all for your patience and support during the somewhat chaotic move! See you in College Heights soon!
