Backpack fundraiser nets $2,700
A team of massage therapists and reflexologists and employees with Noridian Administration Services raised more than $2,700 on Oct. 24 to buy food for the Community Action Region VI Weekend Backpack for Kids program.
In observance of National Massage Therapy Awareness Week, 10 massage therapists offered 10-minute massages for a minimum donation of $10 in the Jamestown Business Center. The therapists and Noridian employees also sold baked goods during the massage therapy fund-raiser.
The event was organized by Michelle Kinzler, owner of Therapeutic Massage Works, and Terri Rosemore, owner of Body and Mind Therapeutic.
Therapists who took part in the fundraiser were Morgan Adams, Cathy Anderson, Julie Bossert, Sakeenah Cross, Marnie Mohr, Amie Schultz, Scott McNeal, Megan Wilson, Kinzler and Rosemore. Betty Haufschild, a Noridian representative, and Sarah Oberlander, of Community Action Region VI, also participated in the event.
