Employees of Blattner collected and donated hundreds of toys and clothing for dozens of families in the central Minnesota area from mid-October through mid-December in 2020. Gifts of toys and clothing were donated to 59 children of 18 families within Central Minnesota, and an additional 90 unwrapped toys were also donated as a part of this event.
Employees collaborated with the Avon Food Shelf and Albany Women of Today to have the toys and clothing distributed to those in need. This was the 15th year of this annual event at Blattner where employees gave back to the community during the holidays.
Giving back to local communities is a part of the Blattner's culture. Employees focused on others as they embraced and lived out this culture by working together to gather funds and shop for items on the children’s wish lists. This event is one of the many efforts employees and Blattner puts forth to make the world a better place.
