Businesses collect supplies for four Penn Manor schools

Two local businesses are helping assure that students at four Penn Manor schools get the supplies they need this school year.

Roberts Automotive in Mountville and Customs Classics Auto Body in Conestoga collected school supplies from their staff, customers and community members and donated them to Central Manor, Pequea, Conestoga and Eshleman elementary schools.

Hundreds of pencils, notebooks, packs of crayons, glue sticks, rulers, binders, tissues and other basic supplies were donated in an effort that began six years ago with one school and now includes four Penn Manor schools.

“We are so appreciative of their generosity and outreach to help Penn Manor students,” said Brian Malek, principal of Central Manor Elementary. “It’s such great community support.”

Many thanks to Troy McComsey of Roberts and Joel Herzog of Customs Classics for coordinating this effort. And thank you to all who donated!
