Cranberry High School was a recipient of an incredible act of kindness. Komatsu, formerly known as Joy Mining, donated coats, hats, gloves, backpacks, and numerous boxes of personal care products on Jan. 11.

“We would like to thank Komatsu for their extreme generosity,” says Lori Corbett, guidance counselor at CHS who accepted the donations on behalf of the school.

Inspired by seeing children walking to school without coats and gloves, employees at the local business funded the purchase of the numerous donations.

Items were delivered to Cranberry’s CARE team who will distribute them to needy students.

According to Corbett, “We gave out our first item today.”
