Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Action News 5 general manager:

(WMC-TV) - I love Memphis and the Mid-South. I love our culture, our history, our vibe, and our soul. I love our world renowned research institutions and universities. I love our characters, our grit and grind, and our arts. And I'm struck by how much visitors to our city love the Memphis experience.

I find it fascinating how much you hear "out of towners" rave about the fun they had while here.

I'm also struck by the generosity of our business community. We all hear of the contributions by FedEx, Autozone, International Paper, St. Jude, so many companies big and small based right here and making a difference.

Last week, Fred's, another Memphis based company, contributed more than $30,000 dollars to the American Heart Association.

These things happen every day in our community. Cities that thrive enjoy a combination of business and civic involvement and pride.

If you know of a business that has given back and deserves to be recognized, email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or visit A Better Mid-South on Facebook and leave a message for me there. Whatever your walk in life, I hope you'll think of ways you can give back and make this A Better Mid-South.
