Letter to the editor: ‘Trotters’ gave back to Jamestown community

Nothing feels better than giving back to the community in which we live and work!

I want to give a big thank you to Geri Mittleider from Minneapolis for organizing the second annual Turkey 5K Trot/Run that was held on Thanksgiving Day. Mittleider is originally from Jamestown and had participated in a Turkey Trot a few years ago in Minneapolis and decided what an opportunity this would be for the Community Action IV Food Pantry in Jamestown.

There were 147 “Trotters” who participated this year and donated more $3,000 of canned goods and $2,000 in a cash donation.

Thank you to all who participated and let’s double our numbers for next year. Let’s make this a family tradition.

Merry Christmas.
