Clegg’s Supports Crayons2Calculators

Clegg's Supports Crayons2CalculatorsOnce again this year, Clegg’s joined with numerous other individuals and organizations to support the Crayons2Calculators school supply drive of The Durham Teacher Warehouse Corp. A total of $54,000 in supplies was collected to benefit local students! The mission of Crayons2Calculators is to “serve the educational and creative needs of students in the Durham Public School system by providing free school supplies to classroom teachers.” They collect supplies and then invite Durham teachers into the warehouse to “shop” and outfit their classrooms at no charge.

A recent study by the National School Supply and Equipment Association found that in the 2012-13 school year, 99.5% of public school teachers reported spending their own money on school supplies, instructional materials and/or other classroom materials. Ten percent spent $1,000 or more of their own money in total for the school year-about double the percent as in past studies. We applaud Crayons2Calculators and its supporters for working toward ensuring that teachers no longer have to pay money from their own pockets in order to do their jobs effectively. Read more…

Clegg’s Acquires Kiser Exterminating, Inc.

Both pest control companies are NC-based and family-owned

Durham, NCClegg’s Termite & Pest Control, LLC announced today that it has acquired Kiser Exterminating, Inc., of Roxboro. Kiser will retain its name and continue operations as Kiser Exterminating with Marshall Kiser managing the subsidiary.

“My father Norman, Sr. founded Kiser more than 40 years ago,” said Marshall Kiser, owner of Kiser Exterminating. “My brother and I have both worked in the family business. When my brother passed away earlier this year, it was a blow to the company and the community he so dearly loved. I believe the decision to merge our operations with Clegg’s is a good one for our customers, who will continue to receive the great service they have always seen. I’ll be remaining with the company and servicing my existing pest customers who can call me at 336-599-2381.”

“We’re pleased to have Kiser Exterminating join the Clegg’s family,” said Philip Clegg, President of Clegg’s. “Kiser has very similar values to Clegg’s, in that they are a family-owned, local operation. They are also dedicated to providing excellent service and meeting all the pest control needs of their clients. We believe the acquisition will be a good fit for the companies and for our Roxboro clients.”
