BHFCU Gives Back - April 2023

At BHFCU, our commitment to improving lives in the communities we serve is as strong as ever. In April, our team found ways to do positive things across South Dakota. Learn more below.


Focusing on Animals
In 2023, we are refocusing our staff-led charitable giving program, the Community Action Team (CAT.) Each month follows a theme with multiple organizations benefiting. In April, we focused on Helping Animals, benefiting 11 rescues across South Dakota. Check out what we accomplished!


Who We Supported
From Sioux Falls to Spearfish, we supported the following rescues: A Place for Meow, Happy Tails Haven, Oglala Pet Project, STARS Rescue, Wakpa Waste, Sturgis Animal Shelter, PAWS Rescue, Almost Home K9 Rescue, Battle Mountain Humane Society, Western Hills Humane Society, Black Hills Humane Society.


Fundraising for Furry Friends
With three prize packages ranging from Pamper Yourself, Pamper Your Pet, and a good old Visa gift card, we raised $5,500 for South Dakota animal rescues!


Collecting Supplies for Animals
During April, we put our collection bins out in all locations to gather food, toys, treats, bedding, and cleaning supplies. Our final tally came to hundreds of items donated by community members and BHFCU staff.


Support from the Community
A special thank you to All Creatures Veterinary Clinic, Black Hills Bark Avenue, All Pro Pet Spa, Barks and Bubbles, and Woofers for supporting our drive as donation locations. The outpouring from the community surpassed our expectations!


Championing Good Sleep for Kids
We know how important rest is for growing kids. That's why we were happy to support Sleep in Heavenly Peace’s work in Pierre. Our $500 donation helps drive the organization’s work to root out child “bedlessness.” Their mission is to provide kids in need with a bed of their own to get a good night’s rest. We thank Sleep in Heavenly Peace for their essential work!
