Trailer for sale or rent...

Springfield is in need of modular classrooms after taking a direct hit by an F3 tornado. Amherst just happens to have surplus modular classrooms in like new condition, never used as actual classrooms, purchased at the recommendation of the old guard school committee for an elementary school the soon thereafter closed to save over a half million dollars annually.

It's not like they are doing Amherst any good, so why not donate them to a good cause?

Yes, the cost to move them is probably in the tens of thousands but considering the plight of Springfield school kids it would not be hard to enlist civic minded plumbers, electricians, carpenters and a freight hauler who would donate their skills.

If it's beyond platitudes, it's beyond possibility.


p.s.

Roaches at rest tend to stay at rest.

These won't be needed. School ends shortly and everything will be ready to reopen by September.

According to the Springfield Republican article I linked to, one of the schools will be under construction for two years.

I'll bet the Teamsters might donate some of the moving costs and the federal disaster aid would help.
