The Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce Y-Pro (young professionals) group is having a coat drive this fall and we will get details from three members of the group on AM Minnesota 9:30 this morning.

Amy Kramer, Casie Steeves and Beckie Lippert will be our guests.  They are calling their event "warm our community."

If you can't tune in 9:30 a.m. please go to and watch a video of the show.  It should be uploaded by mid-afternoon.

Below is information from the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce website about their young professionals group.



GROW Yourself, GROW Your Business, GROW Your Community.

Faribault Young Professionals is a group that coordinates, collaborates, and promotes events around Faribault to build relationships and opportunities, provide educational and professional development, build awareness of local issues, contribute to the community, and keep young professionals living and working in the area.


We encourage you to participate in all of our monthly events to benefit fully from Y-Pro, however there is no commitment required.  Our lunches, special events and happy hours focus on networking or community topics. The group also engages in community service, social, and educational/professional development.
