RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. -- More than 300 volunteers from the Arkansas Tech University community and the surrounding area packed 37,000 meals for neighbors in need during an event coordinated by The Pack Shack Saturday morning at the W.O. Young Building Ballroom.
    
Those in attendance needed just one hour to pack the cheesy rice and vegetable meals, which were given to local service organizations for distribution to the food insecure in the Arkansas River Valley.
    
“This was a fun way to do something very useful for our community,” said Susie Nicholson, vice president for student services and university relations. “The students had a good time working together for a common cause. It was the perfect way to start our Martin Luther King Jr. celebration.”
