January Volunteer of the Month

Congratulations to Molly Ruby, Elk River’s January Volunteer of the Month. Mayor Dietz recognized Molly at Tuesday’s City Council meeting for her dedicated service to many community organizations/programs making a positive impact on young people. Molly volunteers with several youth sports organizations throughout the year, including football and girls basketball. Molly is responsible for bringing the "Girls on the Run" program to Elk River, and is a regular fixture at ISD 728 Parker Elementary School volunteering in classrooms, fundraising for the school carnival, and organizing the Destination Imagination program. Molly also likes to spend her time giving back to the CAER food shelf, Feed my Starving Children, Salvation Army, Saint Andrew's Catholic Church, and the YMCA.
