Iron Vault store to open at Mancelona High School

Joanie Moore

MANCELONA ؅— A new store is set to open inside Mancelona High School when students return to their classrooms following winter break.

The best part is that everything in the store is free.

The Iron Vault free store was created by two Mancelona community members and a high school teacher with the goal of helping students reach their highest potential. Inspired by the success of Kalkaska High School's Karen's Pantry, in memory of Karen Hodgman, the Iron Vault will be a convenient source of food, clothing and hygiene items. In providing for these basic needs, the store helps eliminate physical barriers that might otherwise interfere with education, socialization and success.
