People Helping People - June 2022
At BHFCU, our commitment to improving lives in the communities we serve is as strong as ever. In June, our team found ways to do positive things across South Dakota. Learn more below.
Veterans Community Project Tiny Home Sponsorship
Our Sioux Falls team was thrilled to present a $50,000 donation to the Veterans Community Project! With these funds, BHFCU will sponsor (and help build) a tiny home for veterans in need. The VCP village is a specialized community of 25 tiny homes with on-site services to help homeless Veterans return to an independent life. We are honored to be a part of this important project.
Make-A-Wish Disc Golf Tournament
BHFCU staff member Terry B. led the charge to raise $2,000 for Make-A-Wish by hosting a memorial disc golf tournament for his daughter Grace in Rapid City. The tournament was made up of 47 competitors and sponsored by several local businesses. Way to go, Terry!
Parkinson’s Foundation Fundraiser
BHFCU staff members recently raised $800 for the Parkinson's Foundation! Our staff member Leslie M. led the effort in honor of her father-in-law. Funds were raised to "sponsor" her run in the Mickelson Trail Half Marathon and through yoga and meditation classes she taught at our office. Outside the office, she also raised $2,708.45, bringing her total raised for the Parkinson's Foundation to $3,508.45! We love supporting causes that are important to our team.
Sioux Falls Adopt-A-Highway Clean-Up
After being rescheduled due to weather, several members of our Sioux Falls team took part in the Adopt-A-Highway program. We appreciate their efforts to keep Sioux Falls beautiful! Special thanks to Buffie B. for leading the charge.
St. Francis House Volunteer Event
The BHFCU Sioux Falls crew are regular volunteers at the St. Francis House. They helped serve another meal to residents in June. We appreciate all the work the St. Francis House does to support the Sioux Falls community.
Front Porch Coalition Donation
All concessions purchased during our Member Auto Sale this year benefited the Front Porch Coalition. This year, food and beverage purchases helped us raise $1,000! The Front Porch Coalition's mission is to provide suicide awareness, survivor support, and prevention services in the Black Hills area.
