— Employees with Charlotte-based Pelton & Crane will sell baked goods to help some York students have a smoother transition into the new school year.

The company has for the past couple years held a bake sale to raise money for school supplies for students at York’s Harold C. Johnson Elementary School, said Amber Wallner, a human resources generalist with the company.

“It’s really our employees that do the most,” said Wallner. They ask for donations of individually packaged baked goods and sell them during work hours for $1 each.

“With that money, we get a list of what school supplies are needed for Harold C. Johnson and then we go out and purchase them,” Wallner said.

She added: “We are really just wanting to give back to our community. The employees really care about their local community.”

For the past several years, the four York County school districts have teamed up to organize and promote an annual school supply collection drive with The Herald and its three community publications, the York and Clover Enquirer-Herald, Lake Wylie Pilot and Fort Mill Times .

The drive continues through Aug. 4. All four districts are accepting donated supplies and cash, used to purchase supplies.

In Clover, supplies will be distributed during a back-to-school bash in cooperation with Roosevelt Community Watch from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Aug. 9 at the District Resource Center.
