Members of the South Dakota Central Chapter of Credit Unions recently gathered at the Salvation Army in Huron, SD to donate items to the food pantry. A combination of employees, members, and volunteers contributed to this donation effort, which happened over a one-month time frame.
Central Chapter President, Tiffanie Kouf, visited with the Salvation Army and learned they are seeing an increase in single parents come through for assistance. Many of these individuals are young themselves and are grateful for easy meal solutions. With this in mind, items donated consisted mostly of canned fruits and vegetables, easy meal prep items, canned soups, pancake mixes, boxed dinner solutions, and the like to help fill the voids on the shelves.
