Huntersville-based Irwin Tools donated and delivered toolboxes, hand tools and power tool accessories Dec. 7 to the Cornelius and Huntersville fire departments.

"We were excited when we got the call from the Lake Norman Regional Economic Development Corp. to schedule a time for Irwin Tools to pay us an early Santa Claus visit," Cornelius Deputy Fire Chief Gary Barbee said. "We operate on a tight budget and appreciate all the donations we can get to help us do the best job possible in the community."

"The new tool box filled with hand tools and accessories will be put to good use keeping equipment in proper working order to save lives," Capt. David Whitener of Huntersville Fire Department Station 3 said.

Irwin Tools employs 120 people at its Huntersville headquarters and about 1,000 worldwide.
