Proctor & Gamble Duracell upgrades – schools reap benefits

     Local schools will receive more than 100 donated pieces of office equipment including two copiers, 97 printers and carts spilling over with toner cartridges thanks to a recent plant-wide equipment upgrade at Duracell’s Lancaster Plant.
     The donation was made Aug. 23 at the district office by Duracell human resources manager Bruce Barre and a group of employees with a vested interest in Lancaster County schools – family members who work in them.
     “We are so fortunate that Duracell believes in our public schools and finds ways to help our schools meet the needs of students and teachers,” school superintendent Gene Moore said. “We will certainly use the supplies Duracell donated to make a difference for our students.”
     With Barre were plant technician Randy Fleming, whose wife teaches at McDonald Green Elementary and whose son teaches at Lancaster High; employee relations manager Karen Yarborough, whose brother teaches at Lancaster High Career Center; plant technician Steve Dingler, whose wife teaches at Buford Middle School; plant technician Daniel Oueini, whose wife teaches at Lancaster High; and production manager Jerry Booher, whose wife is in administration at Lancaster High.
