Warming the Hearts and Bodies of Area Youth in Need

Hundreds of volunteers and donors have rallied together over the past 9 years to make and distribute over 11000  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.

Thank you for joining us in makimg the 9th Annual Project Warm-Up the biggest and best yet!

Last year the Sioux Falls School District identified nearly 1000 children as homeless.

Over the past nine years Project Warm-Up, due to the generosity of many caring donors, provided over 11000 of children in need with a new fleece blanket during the year.

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!
