Community Pathways of Steele County receives scholarship money and a C-grade

Dom Korbel, executive director of Community Pathways of Steele County, thanked the Owatonna Foundation for their tremendous donation at Thursday’s GEM Days concert in Owatonna’s Central Park. He also shared a feel-good story about a smaller donation received this week.

Speaking of a woman at GEM Days on Thursday, he said: “She found a hundred dollar bill on the floor. And she walked up to this person who came to see us and said, ‘Did you drop that? This could be yours. Hundred dollars,” the person said, “no, it’s not mine. So if you want to keep it, keep it.”

“And the woman who found it said, ‘I’ll tell you what. i will give it to you I know it’s not yours But I will encourage you to pass it on and do something good with it. ‘ She took that hundred dollars and came to Community Pathways and donated it to us.”

Korbel continued, “I’m telling this story because the fabric of our community in Owatonna and Steele County is so generous and so generous and they make what we do possible. And part of that fabric is the Owatonna Foundation [Owatonna Foundation President] Tom [Dufresne] said all the things around us that the foundation has been doing. We cannot do what we do alone. We cannot do without your support, and certainly not without the support of the Owatonna Foundation. I’m here to say thank you.”

Community Pathways is in the middle of its expansion project. Korbell said they will be closed Aug. 1-5 to move into the new building extension and will reopen on Aug. 8 for normal hours.
