Give for Good Health
We are entering the season of giving which presents the opportunity to ask: What can I give this year?
Local School Assistance - Schools across South Dakota are working hard to get healthier. Consider volunteering on a school wellness committee, PTO group, or helping with an event. Fuel Up to Play 60 can help get you started.
A donation - This is the time of year when many families make tough decisions between food, medicine, and electricity. Donate to your local food bank, or consider donating much needed milk through the Great American Milk Drive.
Time and talents - Local food banks in South Dakota are always looking for volunteers. Consider giving your time this holiday season. Feeding South Dakota has some great ideas!
Education - Help others understand how to make healthier holiday recipes. This is a great enrichment activity for senior centers, preschools, church groups, and clubs. Check out some delicious recipes here.
