Firm to donate CDs and DVDs to local schools

Imation Corp., a maker of digital storage media, is giving nearly 100,000 CDs and DVDs to North Mississippi school districts.

The program, which will be highlighted at a presentation this afternoon at the company’s Southaven distribution center, is a helping hand to teachers who would be spending money out of their own pockets, school officials said.

Rep. Travis Childers, D-Miss., will be at today’s ceremony. The event will be at 3:30 p.m. at the Minnesota-based company’s facility at 8680 Swinnea Road.
