In Newton-Conover, we greatly value our community and business partners, and we are grateful for their support. This semester, Nicola Hershberger contacted Techinbilt about donating some shopping carts to Conover School to be used throughout the school to assist students with job training as they collect recycling items from the classrooms, deliver backpacks of food to students who receive food bags for the weekend, and as they take laundry to and from the washing machines. Technibuilt donated seven shopping carts to Conover School. Now all high school teachers have a shopping cart in their classroom. They provided two additional carts for the four middle school teachers and three more for the whole school to use. Conover School is appreciative of this generous donation from Technibuilt!
