The Vikings, partners and fans have contributed more than $100,000 to the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center through an effort that began Sept. 18 when the Vikings and JWRC launched a text-to-give campaign at the first regular-season game at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Minnesotans have given more than $17,000 to the campaign. Fans can continue that giving today by texting "JACOB" to 91999 to make a one-time donation of $11.
