East LA Skills Center Receives Tools For the Trade

A $1.4 million donation of tools and equipment to Los Angeles Unified School District’s (LAUSD) Division of Adult and Career Education was announced yesterday.

Harbor Freight Tools, a local tool company, made the announcement at the East Los Angeles Skills Center in Lincoln Heights.

According to LAUSD, more than 55,000 items will be donated to the trade schools. The school district’s industrial career education instructors compiled the list of wish list of items to be donated from products available in the company’s Pasadena store.

The tools and equipment, capable of filling about 15 semi trailer truck-loads, will be used by students in LAUSD’s air conditioning repair, electronics, plumbing, construction work and many other field programs.
