Sioux Empire United Way Looks to Connect Kids with Activities, Organizations

Sioux Empire United Way

Sioux Falls parents have an outstanding choice for kids activities this summer.  That can pose problems.

1)  What to choose?  2) How many?  3)  How much will it cost?

Children have many options from sports to theater to camps and more, and Connecting Kids will provide hundreds of area students the opportunity to participate in a youth activity this year for free.

The Connecting Kids program partners with 26 different organizations to promote youth activities and provide financial resources to families who may need assistance.

In a release from the Sioux Empire United Way:

Local studies show that cost is a factor in children not being able to join the numerous activities available to them across the Sioux Empire. Connecting Kids is designed to ensure every child in grades K-8 has an opportunity for getting involved.  Studies also indicate a direct correlation between getting kids involved in activities and their self-esteem, peer relationships and successes later in life. In addition to those benefits, children will learn new activities and skills.

Parents are encouraged to inquire about Connecting Kids certificates when signing their child up for an activity.  Another way to obtain a Connecting Kids certificate is by calling Sioux Empire United Way at (605) 336-2095.  Or click here for more details.
