Service Projects

  • Boys & Girls Club of the Sioux Empire (BGCSE): Amy Sumner ’87 has requested help from volunteers with painting at one of the Boys & Girls Club facilities. The goal of BGCSE is to provide a developmentally appropriate program to enable each child to grow intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially while becoming aware of their surroundings and their abilities. Children ages 8 and older are invited to help with this project. All supplies will be provided. (Limit 10)
  • JAM Art & Supplies: JAM was created by Jess Miller ’09 to provide information about the underground art scene, artists, and art events. JAM opened Sioux Falls’ first Creative Reuse store, a store that resells unused or like-new donated craft and art supplies. JAM is looking for help with sorting supplies, folding fabrics, and organizing closets. Children are invited to help with this project. (Limit 20)
  • Washington Pavilion: Come, be a part of the 2018 Design Challenge! Teams of elementary through high school students will be challenged to design and create a superhero and a gadget or powers that address a specific task that would better humankind. Volunteers are needed to help with judging different elements of the competition, tallying score sheets, updating the leader board, and helping at the registration table. Children ages 13 and older are invited to help with this project. (Limit 10)
