CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Hoober Inc., a Case IH farm equipment dealer with locations in Pennsylvania and Delaware, recently presented checks to two area organizations from money raised by auctioning a new Case IH Scout utility vehicle.

During the dealership’s customer appreciation day in Chambersburg on Jan. 26, the United Way of Franklin County, Pa., and Mennonite Disaster Service’s Cumberland Valley Unit were each presented with checks for $3,475. Each organization received 50 percent of the money raised from the sale of the Scout.

The money received by the United Way will benefit the Women in Need shelter for abused women and children in Franklin County. The shelter offers counseling, support and rescue work, while also providing the day-to-day supplies needed to care for families.

The Cumberland Valley Unit of Mennonite Disaster Service is a volunteer organization doing work in the majority of counties in southcentral Pennsylvania by helping clean up, repair, and in some instances, rebuild, to help those affected by disasters.
