Build Hope In Children In Honor Of Jacob Wetterling
ST. JOSEPH -- Tomorrow (Wednesday) marks 25 years since Jacob Wetterling was abducted outside of his home in St. Joseph and the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center is asking you to do something to create hope and light in the world in honor of Jacob.
The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center (JWRC) works to end all forms of child abuse, neglect, and exploitation through education, prevention, and awareness.
"There is no such thing as closure, but I do believe strongly in justice," says Alison Feigh, program manager for the JWRC.
"We continue to work in Jacob's name so that one day all children will grow up free from harm."
In the 25 years since the abduction, the JWRC has asked families to leave a porch light on every October 22nd to honor Wetterling.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) being the 25th anniversary of the abduction, the JWRC is asking you to also shine a light by building hope in children.
There are several ways to build hope in children - spend time with them by going for a bike ride together, taking up arts and crafts, or reading to them.
The JWRC says there is no greater way to honor Jacob than to create a more hope-filled world.
