Recently Atlas had the pleasure of sponsoring the Roseville FireBears Robotics Team. Sponsoring teams is one of the many ways Atlas gives back to the community. We help to provide Roseville Area High School students with real world experience by creating fabricated sheet metal parts for their CAD models and designs. The FireBears Robotics team focuses on using Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and makes it a goal to show the importance of engineering and science to the community.
We strive for the students to be able to see the fabrication process from start to finish. We work as a team with the students to collaborate on design, improvements, and schedule the fabrication. A tour of our factory is also offered to the students, so they can learn how the parts are fabricated based on their CAD models.
We love being able to support the FireBears Robotics Team in their efforts. Thank you to the team for another year of partnership!

To continue our mission to be a company that gives back to the community, we have introduced a new charity initiative that allows both our employees and customers to give back. Each month, we will select one customer to have a portion of their bookings be donated to one of the 7 charities Atlas identified as important to our business.
The charities that Atlas has chosen to work with are Sharing and Caring Hands, Parkinson’s Foundation of Minnesota, MS Society-Upper Midwest Chapter, The Angel Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Shriners Healthcare for Children-Twin Cities, and the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute. Each of these charities hold a special connection to one or multiple individuals in our organization, and we are honored to contribute to their causes.
This month, our chosen customer selected The Angel Foundation, whose mission is to provide support to local adults with cancer and their families. For more than fifteen years, their programs have helped families facing cancer find more everyday moments of joy. Through an innovative and integrated approach of financial assistance, education and support, Angel Foundation helps adults with cancer and their families so that they may live life well with stability, strength and resilience. Thank you to our customer for working with us on this charity initiative and helping to make a difference in this world!
