Shopko (Donation to NHS - 11 July 2012)
The Shopko Foundation will present Neillsville High School with a $2,500 check at the Shopko Hometown store’s grand opening Aug. 9, 2012. According to Tara Powers, spokesperson for Shopko, the foundation is presenting a donation to schools in every market a Shopko Hometown store is opening.
According to School Administrator John Gaier, the school district usually uses donations to purchase supplies for students such as pens, pencils, and notebooks. However, Gaier noted the school could use the Shopko donation to purchase new technology.
"We’ll look at our supplies list and see what would be appropriate to use that money for,” he said. “We may be looking to use money like that to purchase another computer or two."
Gaier noted the computers would be made available to students and teachers in the classroom.
Regardless of how the money will be used, Gaier said the school is grateful for the donation.
"We are very appreciative," he said.
