Harbor Freight’s new store in Danvers, Massachusetts, celebrated its recent grand opening with a donation of more than $1000.00 in heavy duty power tools, hand tools, and much-needed supplies to Essex Agricultural and Technical High School – also known as “Essex Aggie.” The donation will help students in the school’s Landscape and Arboriculture program, which focuses on landscape design and construction, arboriculture, and small engine repair. Students also develop basic skills in arboriculture and urban forestry. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony was hosted by the North Shore Chamber of Commerce and the ribbon was cut with One Stop Gardens garden shears (Item #96849) by Essex Aggie students Lizzy Archer and Drew Bissell.
