Ralph Clayton, owner of Clayton’s Self Storage and Clayton Construction in Egg Harbor Township, N.J., is helping a local Christian school expand its facilities at his own expense. Clayton will pay for the transport of six modular classroom buildings being donated by the township’s board of education, as well as the installation of batting cages and a new soccer field.
The project, which also includes additional parking and a 30-foot lighthouse, was approved on Monday by the township’s planning board. Clayton estimated the expansion will cost $250,000, with no expenses incurred by Atlantic Christian School.
“I share the same beliefs the school does, and they just do a fabulous job there,” Clayton said. “It’s just a great school ... and a worthwhile charity.”
