Our Story

Sioux Falls Cares is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization that has served Sioux Falls families in need at Christmas time since 1991.

What started as 7 individuals getting together to spread some cheer to 10 local families has grown into a project that provides food, clothing, toys, and necessities to more than 450 families each year—including over 1,500 children. We also serve hundreds of additional families with gift certificates each year thanks to individual and corporate donors. Without our donors, we wouldn’t be able meet these goals.

Sioux Falls is a special community where many people share their blessings. Sioux Falls Cares has no administrative costs as all labor is volunteer. Financial and physical support from our donors and volunteers make it possible for those less fortunate to have a memorable Christmas.

Our challenge is great, but with help from people like you, we can lift the spirits of those in need.
