2011 GRAY PLANT MOOTY YEAR IN REVIEW Community Service Highlights


School Supply and Coat Drive During 2011, Catholic Charities Emergency Services assisted more than 1,700 central Minnesota students with basic school supplies. The St. Cloud office held a weeklong “Tools for Schools” campaign in support. Employees purchased numerous sup- plies or donated cash to purchase supplies, and the results were amazing. The St. Cloud office also developed a


drive of its own to benefit people in need in the community. On her way into work one Febru- ary morning, receptionist Amy Lupinek noticed some individuals near the office without win- ter coats and decided to start a coat drive. The office ended up donating 37 coats—17 to Place of Hope, 17 to the Salvation Army Emergency Shelter, and three directly to individuals in need.


Clara’s House The St. Cloud Times ran a story in the summer of 2011 highlighting the donations that our St. Cloud office and colleagues made to Clara’s House in the CentraCare Health System. Clara’s House provides children and adolescent mental health and chemical dependency services in central Minnesota.
