Our Story

Lifting the Spirits of Those in Need

Sioux Falls Cares has been serving families in need around the holidays since 1991. Thanks to generous donors and volunteers throughout the community, our non-profit organization is able to deliver Christmas in a box to families, which includes gifts, winter clothes, food, and more.

What started as a group of seven people getting together to spread Christmas cheer to 10 families has since grown into a project that helps more than 600 families each year⁠—including more than 2,000 children.

Spreading Holiday Cheer

We believe everyone deserves to feel special and loved, especially around the holidays. The happiness these packages provide is why Sioux Falls Cares exists. For parents who are working two and three jobs to put food on the table, our yearly delivery is a sigh of relief. Many wouldn't otherwise be able to afford gifts to give to their children. Now they can witness the joy on their children's faces as they open presents on Christmas.
