Virginia, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Those in need around the Arrowhead Region are getting help from AT & T and Hunger Solutions Minnesota.

AT & T gave a $10,000 grant to Hunger Solutions to help buy food for holiday food baskets, which will be given to those in the Arrowhead region.

Volunteers stuffed the baskets at the Virginia Salvation Army, where they will be distributed.

"I think that the need here was great," said AT & T Director of Sales, Brian Shult, "This is a great organization, they've done a great job supporting the Arrowhead. So it felt like a really good opportunity for us."

Volunteers say they stuffed over 400 boxes to give out to those in need.
