Collision & Glass shops partner for schools

Luther Collision and Glass school supply drive

Luther Collision & Glass gathered a total of 750 pounds of contributions from metro area shops and Luther Automotive Services.

Luther Auto’s body and glass contingent and Luther Automotive Services jumped into the “Drive to Serve” game with a school supply drive that gathered materials from several locations and benefited multiple area organizations serving children.

“We want to do it for the kids.  Everybody has a big heart when it comes to kids and education,” said Controller Maissa Hickey, who is based at Luther Collision and Glass in Plymouth.  The donation drive allowed more people to be involved because it didn’t ask for great time commitments outside of work, she explained.

The Bloomington shop gave a lot of notebooks and folders, as well as markers and crayons, said technician Jay Bulloch, an early supporter.

Employees and guests contributed 750 pounds of school supplies in all.  Some of the material went to Park Brook Elementary in Brooklyn Park, North Education Center in New Hope and Bloomington Public Schools.

ResourceWest in Hopkins and the Community Emergency Assistance Program also helped distribute the supplies.

“We were very proud of all the employees who took part!” Hickey said.
