People Helping People - October 2021

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

 

Miracle Jeans Day
Last month we shared that our team raised $500 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. This month, several members of our Sioux Falls team presented our donation to Sanford Children's Hospital.

 

Storybook Island Christmas Decoration
Storybook Island starts gearing up for the holidays early! Several of our staff helped decorate the park with holiday lights this month. Visitors will be able to enjoy Nights of Lights following the Thanksgiving holiday.

 

Habitat for Humanity Donation
This summer, two groups of BHFCU staff helped on Habitat for Humanity builds in Rapid City. In addition to our time, we also contributed $500 to the Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity organization this month.

 

Share the Warmth Blanket Drive
Each year we look forward to our Share the Warmth blanket drive benefiting the Cornerstone Rescue Mission. This year BHFCU staff donated and purchased 45 items, and we had $565 remaining to contribute to the organization.

 

St. Francis House Meal Service
A group from our Sioux Falls locations served a meal to guests at the St. Francis House. Our mission of improving lives aligns with the work the St. Francis House does to move people from homelessness to hope.

 

Halloween Costume Contest Benefiting the Children’s Home Society
BHFCU staff celebrated Halloween for a good cause! We held our annual costume contest benefiting the Children's Home Society. With over 20 groups participating, we raised $800 for the Children’s Home Society!
