    • Austin (Minn.) Plant employees donate to local schools

      The Austin (Minn.) Plant Helping Hands Committee recently presented a check to Austin Public Schools for more than $1,000 to assist with the cost of school supplies for the upcoming school year.

      “Every year it’s just fantastic how the community steps up to help students,” said David Krenz, superintendent, Austin Public Schools. “I know the supplies are well needed and well utilized.”


      Tim Fritz, plant manager, Austin Plant, presented the check to Krenz on behalf of the committee.

      The money will go into a school supplies account, where it will be used by educators to purchase any needed supplies for the school year.

      The Helping Hands committee facilitates other fundraisers throughout the year for other organizations, including Paint the Town Pink, Adopt-a-Family, Relay for Life and the food shelf.
