Veterans' center donations

Members of a local AFL-CIO labor union presented the Veterans’ Resource Center at Central Lakes College in Brainerd with a 21-cu. ft. freezer donated by Electrolux Home Products, St. Cloud, and a check for $550 on Dec. 16. The group will provide $400 worth of food to stock the freezer, which is part of the veterans’ food shelf. Taking delivery were Don Pfeffer and Tyra Oswald of the Higher Education Veterans Program, which is helping about 300 campus veterans and families this holiday season. Presenting the union donations were Mary Beth Juetten, AFSCME Council 5 organizer; Myron Stevens, AFSCME steward at CLC; and Wayne Fleischhacker, area labor council representative.
