Killeen school receives generous donation from Great American Furniture Store

Local

An elementary school in Killeen gets a big donation from a furniture store.

George Lastiri, of the Great American Furniture Store, donated 150 desks to students from Peebles Elementary School.

The purpose of the donation is to provide students with an area to study in their homes.  

Several families met Lastiri on Thursday as he presented them with their free desks.

89 percent of the students at Peebles Elementary are economically disadvantaged and school administrators say the donation will make a big difference.
