7th Annual Mitten Fundraiser A Success

Local businesses in five counties along with Mid-Sioux Opportunity, Inc. have raised nearly $1,200.00 collectively to provide assistance to needy families this winter.  Funds were raised by patrons purchasing mittens for $1 at participating businesses.  Those funds were then provided to Mid-Sioux Opportunity, Inc. to assist families in need. “We had another successful year with our mitten campaign.  Thanks to all the businesses who partnered with us and to everyone who gave!” said Dick Sievers, Mid-Sioux Executive Director.


Thank you to those businesses that participated and allowed so many families to receive assistance this winter.
