Giving Back recognizes businesses and organizations that are helping our communities. Here’s a look at who gave back for July.
Hy-Vee Inc., in partnership with Variety – the Children’s Charity, has wrapped up a fundraising campaign that will provide at least one bike to a child in communities with a Hy-Vee grocery store. Through Petals for Pedals, a portion of each dozen roses that were sold for $10 at Hy-Vee stores went to the fundraiser. Employees from Hy-Vee, Variety and Bike World, supplier of the bicycles, assembled them at Hy-Vee’s corporate campus. Each bike will come with a helmet and lock.
Holmes Murphy hosted its annual golf tournament for insurance carriers to raise money to support children in unfortunate situations. This year’s event raised $15,000 for Make-A-Wish South Dakota. The money will be used to send a 6-year-old boy and his family to Walt Disney World.
Burn Boot Camp’s Be Their Muscle event raised more than $8,050 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The money will be used to help send children to an MDA Summer Camp.
The Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation has distributed its latest round of Community Fund grants, totaling more than $157,000 in support of 20 local nonprofits and causes. The Community Fund is supported by local donors who are passionate about enhancing the quality of life for individuals and families in our area.
