David Grupa was collecting holiday donations from North St. Paul businesses Dec. 18 on behalf of Webster Elementary School when his vehicle was stolen. Though his SUV was later recovered, the toys were gone. PCU donated 50 $25 gift checks to Webster Elementary School to replace the toys. The school collected toys donated from local businesses as a part of the North St. Paul Area Holiday Drive. “Part of PCU’s mission is to help people in the communities we serve,” said PCU President Russ Plunkett. “We were glad to assist in replacing gifts for those less fortunate.”
