Harrisburg, NC (PRWEB) December 27, 2010

During a time when budgets are being slashed, a generous donation to the Cabarrus County Schools will help the school district save money by extending the life of their materials. Absorbent Industries, LLC is donating 300 Dry-Packs Dehumidifier Boxes and 66,000 Moisture Barrier Bags worth $15,297.00 that will allow teachers, librarians and administrative staff preserve materials while not in use.

"We wanted to give something back to our local community and the first place we started was with our local school system," said Eric Hebert, President of Absorbent Industries, LLC. "All you hear about in the news is how schools are getting their budgets cut and we knew this was a perfect place to start. We thought this would be a perfect product for the school system as it uses no electricity and is reusable - making it very eco-friendly."

"We are greatly appreciative of Absorbent Industries and their donation," said Dr. Barry Shepherd, superintendent of Cabarrus County Schools. "These Dehumidifier Boxes and Moisture Barrier Bags will help prevent moisture related wear and tear on our school materials."

The Dry-Packs Dehumidifier products allow the school to preserve their materials from all types of moisture damage and extend the life of their books, decorations, and school materials. The boxes and bags will fight mold, mildew, corrosion and odors.

Dry-Packs Silica Gel based Dehumidifiers are reusable and can absorb up to 40% of their weight in moisture and has one of the highest absorption capacities of any commercially used desiccant.
