Event raises money for backpack program
Jamestown massage therapists conducted their 8th annual massage event at the Jamestown Business Center on Oct. 26 in observance of National Massage Therapy Awareness Week, a national program sponsored by the American Massage Therapy Association.
Ten-minute massages for a minimum $10 donation were offered to people of all ages. Noridian employees along with the therapists also provided a bake sale. Teaming together, all proceeds - $1,755 - were given to the local Community Action Weekend Backpack For Kids Program. All of the money went for food supplies.
Therapists Terri Rosemore, Amie Schultz, and Michelle Kinzler and Noridian representatives Betty Haufschild and Lisa Berg and Community Action representatives Sarah Oberlander participated.
Partners in this are JRMC, Central Valley Health District and Women’s Way.
