Warming the Hearts and Bodies of Area Youth in Need

Hundreds of volunteers and donors have rallied together over the past seven years to make and distribute over 8200  blankets to students in need across the Sioux Empire.

Project Warm-Up has become a community-wide event with kids coming from all four high schools, all five middle schools and many elementary schools in Sioux Falls as well as surrounding areas. Key Clubs, SALSA Clubs, JROTC, Kiwanis Clubs, sporting teams, youth groups, 4-H clubs, Scouts and more have given of their time, talents and resources to make something special during the holiday season for a child they don't even know.

Please consider joining us as we make the 8th Annual Project Warm-Up the biggest and best yet!

Last year the Sioux Falls School District identified over 900 children as homeless.

Over the past eight years Project Warm-Up, sponsored by the Diversity Kiwanis Club, Edison Middle School, and the generosity of many caring donors, provided over 8200 of those homeless children with a new fleece blanket during the holidays.

We want to increase the number of blankets this year, but we need your help!

Look who's been busy making blankets! Thank you for your generosity!
