Operation Hope & Caring
We have a passion for kids. Help us raise money for children most affected by poverty. Funds will go towards school lunches, school supplies, winter clothes and more.
Join us in helping kids to level the playing field!
47% of school kids live in poverty. This means they might not have money for school lunch, school supplies, winter boots, field trips, or washing their clothes. But you can help level the playing field by participating in some fun and practical ways. Join Levo Credit Union, The Sioux Falls Storm and Air Madness in this great effort.

Ways we've helped.
Each dollar provides for more of a well-rounded school experience for local elementary and middle school students who can't generally afford certain opportunities. Experiences like field trips help students learn proper behavior in social settings and build vocabulary they otherwise would not have the opportunity to build. It also provides kids the ability to come to school warm, clean, as well as an opportunity to eat a healthy meal. Some schools were able to purchase washers and dryers and provide lice kits when needed.
How can I participate?
We would love nothing more than to give thousands to help our kids. Here's how YOU can help!

It's so fun when we receive thank you notes from the kids we help! This class decided that many kids needed new socks, so each child receiving a pair, colored a thank you page to Operation Hope & Caring. Thanks for helping us make a difference! Even socks can help!
