How to Help Rebuild Roosevelt’s Early Childhood Center

Dan Debaun

The St. Cloud community suffered a great loss over the weekend as Roosevelt’s Early Childhood Center burned down. Now, here’s how you can help rebuild. 

Catholic Charities’ Young Learner’s Program helps kids with mental difficulties, and they were set to use Roosevelt’s ECC, but even though it was lost in a fire, Catholic Charities needs your help to rise from the ashes.

“Four of our staff serve children ages 3-6 who have significant mental health challenges” said Tim Lieser, Catholic Charities Director of Residential and Day programming. “To those staff, and the kids they served this was their school.”

Catholic Charities Young Learners Program follows the District 742 schedule, so only staff were planning to report on June 16. All classes have been cancelled for this week.

In order to begin again staff need to scramble to secure a number of items. They are badly in need of preschool books, preschool toys, preschool games, classroom supplies like glue, markers, crayons, etc; and they are also accepting cash donations at

The public can drop off any donations at Catholic Charities Administrative Offices, 911 18th St. N, St. Cloud between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
