Helmsley Charitable Trust Partners with Feeding South Dakota

Subscribe to KSOO-AM on

Feeding South Dakota says The Helmsley Foundation has stepped in to volunteer and donate, helping to bridge the hunger gap in South Dakota.

Kerri DeGraff of Feeding South Dakota says summer can be an especially stressful time for families that are hungry, as children are home from school, and don’t have the same access to feeding programs.  The fact that the foundation is a new partner with Feeding South Dakota at such a crucial time is a big boost to meeting the needs of those who are hungry in the state.

“As an organization, the Helmsley Charitable Trust aspires to improve lives through health and select place-based initiatives. This includes giving back to the communities we call home, Sioux Falls and New York.” said Walter Panzirer, a Trustee of the Helmsley Charitable Trust in a press release. “Helmsley’s Sioux Falls staff is honored to partner with Feeding South Dakota for this year’s staff service project and provide a $15,000 grant that could buy 60,000 meals for people in our community.”

Feeding South Dakota is the state’s largest charitable hunger relief organization with distribution centers in Sioux Falls, Pierre and Rapid City, as well as their mobile feeding truck that assists in remote locations.  They also partner with the Faith Temple Food giveaway program at the WH Lyon Fairgrounds. 

Kerri DeGraff says One in every six children in South Dakota are at risk of going hungry.
