People Helping People - March 2022

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

 

Readiatrics Book Drive
We are excited to partner with the Readiatrics Book Drive once again! From March 7 through May 15, we are collecting new and gently used children's books in all our west river locations. Books will be donated to children receiving services from the South Dakota Department of Health.

 

March Blood Drive
In March, we held our bi-monthly Blood Drive at our Corporate Office in partnership with Vitalant. We are excited to report that BHFCU staff members donated 22 units of blood, surpassing our goal of 19 units with the potential of saving 66 lives!

 

HOPE Center Donation
In March, our staff members tried their luck at a chance to win a Pot-of-Gold prize basket! Thanks to their generosity, we donated $1,500 to the HOPE Center in Rapid City, funding THREE days of hope! The HOPE Center provides programs and services to members of the community who are in need of assistance.

 

Dress for Success Clothing Drive
For a second year, we are excited to take part in EmBe’s Dress for Success clothing drive. Beginning in mid-March through May 3, our Sioux Falls and Rapid City MSCs are collection locations for gently used women’s clothing benefiting area women.
