Computer monitors replace those damaged in flood earlier this year


Special to The Leader


ORANGE – INVISTA’s site in Orange recently contributed 100 computer monitors to the Deweyville School District for student use in the classroom. INVISTA worked with the United Way to identify Deweyville as a candidate for the monitors, to replace equipment destroyed in a flood earlier this year.

“We are so grateful for the monitors that INVISTA donated to our school district,” said Brad Haeggquist, principal of Deweyville High School and Junior High School. “They have already been utilized and were instrumental in enabling us to open our new temporary elementary school. To know that there are extraordinarily unselfish and caring companies, such as INVISTA, has helped our teachers and students overcome some of the hardships they have endured.”

“INVISTA is dedicated to enriching the communities where our employees work and play,” said INVISTA Orange site manager Jay Johnson. “With this in-kind donation, it is our hope that students and teachers in the Deweyville School District will have access to the materials they need to continue to educate, learn and grow.”

INVISTA’s Orange site produces nylon intermediate chemicals that are used to manufacture nylon fiber found in such consumer brands as STAINMASTER® residential carpet, ANTRON® commercial carpet, CORDURA® fabrics for military apparel and soft-sided luggage, and bulk nylon fiber for safety airbags.
