MY Place receives more donations; cites community philosophy

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — MY Place, formerly the Boys and Girls Club, recently received a donation of a school bus from the Mayo Clinic Health System and workstations for kids from True Value Warehouse.

The bus will assist MY Place in picking up kids after school and the workstations help grow STEM-related activities in its maker space.

Thank you Mayo Clinic Health System for supporting our new bus!

The donations came to MY Place as the organization continues to operate under its community philosophy.

“I think together we really operate under the philosophy that this space is the community’s space. This space does not belong to me as executive director, it doesn’t even really belong to our board, but it does belong to the community who has supported us as we started and as we operate,” MY Place Executive Director Erin Simmons said.

The bus and workstations help articulate MY Place’s transportation and activity needs.
