LOCAL MANUFACTURER HELPS OGDEN SCHOOLS ADJUST AFTER FIRE
September 20, 2001
CLEARFIELD, UTAH – Lifetime Products Inc., a local manufacturer of folding tables and picnic tables, has donated over 20 tables to Ogden School District. The tables will help provide additional workspace for students who are being merged into Edison Elementary due to the recent fire that destroyed Lincoln Elementary.
“This was a natural fit for Lifetime,” said Lifetime Products Communications Manager Jan Claborn. “We are the world’s largest manufacturer of folding tables, and we are based right here in Clearfield, Utah. To be able to step in and help a local organization that is in such a desperate, tragic situation is what being a good neighbor is all about.”
Lifetime Products donated eleven 4’ adjustable folding tables and eleven 5’ adjustable folding tables to the school. Both types of tables are constructed of high-impact polyethylene that will not crack, chip or peel, and are stain resistant. The tables also exceed strict industry safety standards. Claborn explained that the folding adjustable tables are perfect for all ages of Edison Elementary student use since they adjust in height from 23” to 29” to 36”.
“Lifetime’s donation has helped us out immensely,” said Ogden School donation coordinator Debby Gomberg. “The adjustable tables are so versatile and lightweight that we plan to use them as temporary classroom desks and computer desks for the students, as well as storage space for the teachers. Since we can raise and lower the tables to various heights, they easily can be used by both the younger and older students.”
Established in 1986, Lifetime Products is a privately held company headquartered in Clearfield, Utah. Lifetime Products manufactures high-impact polyethylene folding tables and picnic tables, as well as state-of-the-art basketball equipment. Today, Lifetime is found across the globe.

Editor’s Note: Lifetime will be delivering the tables on Friday, September 21 at 10:00 a.m. The tables will be delivered to the Ogden School donation center located at the Naval Reserve Building on the corner of 20th St. and Jackson St. in Ogden. Lifetime employees, Ogden School staff members, and Ogden students will be present for photo opportunities.
