Tornado recovery fund established for storm victims

Sept. 11, 2019

The Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation has established the Sioux Falls Tornado Recovery Fund following the devastating storms that hit the city Sept. 10.

Gifts made to the fund will help residents recover from tornado-related damage.

If you or someone you know needs assistance recovering from tornado-related damage, the first step is to contact the Helpline Center by calling 211. The Community Foundation will partner with the Helpline Center and other area nonprofits and relief agencies to evaluate needs and distribute funds to storm victims as appropriate.

Gifts to the Sioux Falls Tornado Recovery Fund can be made online by clicking here or can be delivered to the Community Foundation’s office at 200 N. Cherapa Place in downtown Sioux Falls.

“We’re proud to be part of a community that rallies together in times of need,” said Community Foundation president Andy Patterson. “Already this morning, we’ve received a number of calls and messages from folks asking how they could help those impacted by last night’s tornado — more examples of the spirit of generosity and care that exists here. We established this fund to help our neighbors in need at this difficult time and our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been impacted.”
