People Helping People - August 2022
At BHFCU, our commitment to improving lives in the communities we serve is as strong as ever. In August, our team found ways to do positive things across South Dakota. Learn more below.
St. Francis House Volunteering
Our Sioux Falls team was back serving a meal at the St. Francis House this month alongside a BHFCU member! Giving back to our communities is so important and helping others side-by-side with members makes it even more special.
School Supply Drive Staff Silent Auction
Going once, going twice, sold! In August, we held a three-week-long auction for our School Supply Drive. Thanks to generous donations from businesses across South Dakota and the bidding fever whipped up by our staff, we raised $5,778 to purchase supplies for kids in need.
Kidz Cutz Back-to-School Event
We had a blast helping with the free Kidz Cutz event in Sioux Falls on August 21. During the event, 201 kids received back-to-school haircuts and braids, 400 meals were served, 250 backpacks were handed out, and innumerable fun was had. Not only did BHFCU staff volunteer to stuff backpacks and help run the event, they also raised $600 to donate. We are already looking forward to next year!
School Supply Drive Results
Over 105,000 supplies were donated to South Dakota schools as a part of the 26th Annual BHFCU School Supply Drive. One-by-one, these supplies will make their way into the hands of kids who need them in 70+ schools across South Dakota. A heartfelt thank you to all the businesses and individuals who supported this drive. We could not have done it without you!
