Katherine Magy grew up going to Wayzata schools and discovering Interfaith Outreach early in life. She remembers a food drive in middle school that was also a friendly competition. Pulling her red wagon, Katherine spent a day walking through her grandmother’s neighborhood, requesting donations and raising awareness of our food shelf. Shopping with her parents and selecting gifts for our Holiday Gift Program is another wonderful memory. One year, Katherine and her friend Claire actually appeared in marketing materials for the Sleep Out. Smiling photographs show them joining others at St. Phillip the Deacon Lutheran Church.
When Katherine moved back to Plymouth after college with her now-husband of six years, she wanted to get involved with Interfaith Outreach again. Drawing on her professional work experience, Katherine supports Interfaith Outreach Human Resources by consulting on organizational development projects, providing information on employment law and best practices, and serving as a resource and support for our staff. In this role, much of the work Katherine does for Interfaith Outreach is remote, which is a blessing for a part-time working/part-time stay-at-home mother of a toddler with a little one on the way. She also enjoys meeting families and registering them for the Holiday Gift Program or getting them set up with their back-to-school supplies.
Thank you, Katherine. We know your love of Interfaith Outreach will continue on in your children.
