South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB) Women’s Leadership Team (WLT) presented a $1,750 check recently to the Rapid City Regional Hospital Foundation. The funds will be used to provide meals to families that have pediatric patients staying in the hospital.

 

“This generous donation allows families that have children in the hospital to utilize our café at no cost while their child is in the hospital,” said Shawn Powers, Rapid City Regional Hospital Foundation. “The good food helps make the families’ time away from home more comfortable and is definitely appreciated.”

 

SDFB also delivered groceries to the Ronald McDonald House in Sioux Falls in March. Funds to make both donations possible were donated by SDFB county Farm Bureaus across the state.

 

“I really appreciate SDFB recognizing the need to give back to families both at the Ronald McDonald House and with the Rapid City Regional Hospital,” said Diane Geigle, WLT member. “It is always an amazing feeling to be able to help people in need.”
