On Thursday, Nov. 11, the Outreach Program of Brainerd Lakes facilitated a remote packing event at ATEK in Brainerd.

Thirty ATEK employees participated in the packing event, resulting in 7,560 meals being packaged. Those meals will be distributed in Minnesota to families in need.

“We set up right in the facility’s work space, cranked up some music and packed 7,560 meals with these great people,” said Shawn Hansen, Executive Director of Outreach BLA. “Remote packing was put on hold due to COVID. The last time we did a remote pack was March 6, 2020.”
