Cities rally to create joy for Jacob

Community shows support for Wetterling

MINNEAPOLIS - The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center says their phones are ringing off the hook with people wanting to send their support and offer help.

After Tuesday's developments in the Jacob Wetterling case, the JWRC program manager says community members have brought up a lot of ideas to honor and create joy for Jacob.

One event, called "Create Joy" is getting a lot of attention on Facebook.

It is an event where volunteers would do things to help neighbors in Paynesville.

"If that's what the endpoint of this part, this chapter of the story is, what we can do to make the world better for kids that's a good way for this chapter of the story to end" said Alison Feigh, Program Manager for JWRC.

The JWRC will host a 5-k run on October 22, which is something they planned last year to turn a somber day into something positive.
