The Red Cross is working hand in hand with emergency officials throughout South Dakota to assess the needs of victims in the various communities and lend assistance as needed.

Remember, the Helpline Center here in Sioux Falls is still in desperate need of people to volunteer to help storm damage victims here in our area.

To learn more and to lend a hand, simply stop in at the Helpline Center at 1000 North West Ave, Suite 310, Monday through Friday, from 8 AM to 5 PM, and they'll match you up with a volunteer assignment.
