Your Letter: Volunteers bridging the gaps during downturn

In recent years as Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative's Community Trust board members have reviewed Operation Round Up grant applications, it has been noted that the types of local funding requests are stark reflections of our current economic downturn. It is evident that many schools are hurting for basic needs. The same could be said of city services such as libraries, parks and social programs.

While this may not be surprising, it highlights the fact that many community organizations and individual volunteers are generously donating their time and resources to bridge gaps, and they should be commended.
