Local Food Pantries in St. Cloud

Thanksgiving is rolling around, which means family and friends will be coming together for a feast before you know it. This holiday season, however, we here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi would like to ask you to give a little back to your community. The local food pantries in St. Cloud could use your donations in preparation this coming holiday.

The Salvation Army Food Shelf is one of the major food pantries in our area. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday between 1pm and 3pm as well as Tuesday and Thursday between 9am and 11am.

Those in need should note that there’s a one visit per month limit and you’ll need a photo ID and proof of address as well. The Salvation Army Food Shelf in St. Cloud, Minnesota serves the Benton, Sherburne, and Stearns counties.

It doesn’t matter how little or how much you give—every bit helps feed the hungry and less fortunate in our very own community.

If you don’t have anything to give, consider volunteering your time instead. Contact the food pantry directly at (320) 252-4552. Potential volunteers can also fill out a volunteer application and drop it off at the Worship and Service Center located at 400 U.S. Highway 10 South.

The Paris Motor Show is one of a handful of major automotive events held around the world throughout the year. It’s a time for automakers to show off production models and concept vehicles alike. Mitsubishi was out to take the spotlight this year with a set of concepts that were easy on the eyes, to say the least.

A next-generation plug-in hybrid crossover took center stage, but it wasn’t the Outlander we were hoping for. Instead, the GT-PHEV concept, otherwise known as the Grand Tourer, is the latest hybrid concept to debut in recent years.

Next year, however, is an entirely new story.

Starting in 2017, Mitsubishi’s debuts will no longer just be concepts. Instead, production models will take the helm under the leadership of Tsunehire Kunimoto, Mitsubishi’s new global design chief. His strategy is to boast about the brand’s reputation while continuing to move forward.

Remember that Grand Tourer Concept? There’s a very real possibility it could become the next-generation Outlander in 2019. As a result, Mitsubishi played with an upscale design theme for the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

The GT-PHEV boasted a floating roof and maximized space and visibility on the interior. The future of Mitsubishi begins at the Geneva Motor Show next spring where the Japanese automaker will unveil its newest crossover.

We here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi are happy with what we saw at the Paris Motor Show!
