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 need help paying for things many take for granted. 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.
Kids can experience field trips which provide invaluable opportunities to learn proper social behavior and expand their vocabulary in ways that may not be possible otherwise. Additionally, this program enables children to access warm, clean clothing and receive lice kits when necessary. Many schools have been able to purchase washers and dryers which have aided in specific needs.

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!
