In Rapid City, the United Way is 52 percent complete in reaching its yearly goal-- after raising just over a million dollars so far.
When you give to the United Way, your money goes to organizations like the Salvation Army, which provides many services to the public.
These include utility assistance, as well as low price clothing, furniture, and appliances through its thrift shop.
We are also entering the holiday season, which is the busiest time of the year for the organization. The Salvation Army will again provide food and toys for the needy.
"The United Way of the Black Hills provides $75,000 directly to the Salvation Army. And we're not only able to leverage those funds, but I assure you all of the programs and services the Salvation Army is able to provide is because of those funds," said Mark Kirkeby, Black Hills Development Director of the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army is celebrating its 104th year in Rapid City. It was one of the original partners of the United Way of the Black Hills.
