KNAACK® Gives Back to Support High School Sports Team
Crystal Lake, IL – May 29, 2012 – KNAACK LLC, a member of the Crystal Lake community for more than 40 years, continues its commitment to supporting local schools and youth activities with a donation of an equipment storage chest to the Crystal Lake South High School Gators Lacrosse team.
The 25-member varsity Lacrosse team is a self-funded, self-insured organization staffed by volunteers. The equipment storage box from Knaack provides the team with a secure and convenient way to store their practice and game equipment at their home field so that they no longer have to carry the load back and forth before and after each practice or game. The model 3068 KNAACK® CLASSIC Storage Chest provides the team with 31 cubic feet of storage space and heavy-duty steel construction.
The team expressed their appreciation saying that having the on-site storage box allowed them to spend more time on the field working with their coaches instead of mobilizing and transporting equipment. With several post-season games in May and an all-star game in June, the team invites the community out to Sunset Park to watch what they describe as “the fastest game in town on two feet”.
Throughout their history, KNAACK® has supported a number of charities and institutions by hosting local fund-raising events and making donations to organizations such as the United Way, Habitat for Humanity, the American Heart Association, McHenry County College, and Elgin Community College, among others.
Knaack LLC, a division of EMERSON Commercial & Residential Solutions, also manufactures and markets a complete line of WEATHER GUARD® truck and van equipment, including drawer units, shelving and cabinets, and racks for full size and compact pickups, vans and utility vehicles, as well as KNAACK® jobsite storage equipment, including storage chests, work stations, rolling work benches and hand tool boxes.
