March One Thing: Diapers & Bath Towels
For the March One Thing, we collected 6,626 diapers, 291 towels, 640 toothbrushes, and 373 tubes of toothpaste for refugee families in our communities.
Each year, an estimated 500 refugees move to Sioux Falls and the surrounding communities. These refugees have been forced to flee their homeland because of war and persecution and move here in search of safety and a new life.
For this One Thing, we partnered with Lutheran Social Services’ Center for New Americans. They provide refugee families with a place to stay and basic necessities during their time of transition.
Thanks to everyone who joined us in this One Thing!
