Sturgis & Belle Fourche dealership raises funds and food for the needy

Posted:

Sturgis, SD, January 7, 2014: 

Scott Peterson Motors of Belle Fourche and Sturgis ended its 5th Annual December Food Drive last week to raise funds for the Belle Fourche Ministerial Association and Sturgis Kiwanis Club, also gathering two  truckloads of food to supplement the communities' food pantries. The dealership well exceeded last year's donation of $7,750 and set a new record total for the yearly event. Funds raised are administered by the Belle Fourche Ministerial Association and Sturgis Kiwanis Club, splitting the funds and food among local groups to provide food, shelter, and utilities for needy families and individuals in the Belle Fourche and Greater Sturgis area. Pantry items, dry goods, and hygiene products collected in the effort are donated directly and distributed to needy individuals and families.

 To supplement private donations made by the staff and employees of the dealership and the public, Scott Peterson Motors pledged $100 to the Drive for each vehicle sold during the month of December. Lueders Food Center in Belle Fourche also donated a very large amount of food this year, boosting the new record of 3,500 pounds even further.

 Scott Peterson was in a great mood after hearing the new high bar set by the employees. "Being able to now do this in two communities is a great feeling. Exceeding last year's numbers by as much as we did really proves how great the communities that we live in are at being not only customers, but good neighbors to those in need. We can't wait to set a new record for both food and donations next year."
