WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools’ Board of Trustees discussed recent donations during a brief meeting on Monday, Aug. 16.
In the last month, Nextremity Solutions, which recently moved into its new headquarters in the Warsaw Technology Park, donated office furniture valued at $10,000 to WCS.
“We were able to replace a number of items through that,” said WCS Superintendent Dr. David Hoffert.
Zimmer Biomet donated excess personal protective equipment (PPE), while Kroger donated an overabundance of hand sanitizer.
“We were able to procure a number of pallets of hand sanitizer that can be used in any type of circumstance,” said Hoffert. “COVID, pre-COVID, post-COVID, hand sanitizer is good.”
K21 Foundation recently donated fitness equipment and the Warsaw Tri-Kappa Chapter also donated to the Fribley Fund.
In other business, Chief Financial Officer April Fitterling informed the board that the public hearing for the school corporation’s 2022 budget will take place at the next regular meeting on Sept. 20. The board will adopt the budget on Oct. 26.
The board’s next work session is at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 14. The next regular session will be at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 20. Both meetings will be held in the school corporation’s central office.
