Country Singer Helps Celebrate A Big Donation

Country Singer Helps Celebrate A Big Donation
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Feeding South Dakota will have 14,000 more meals, thanks to a generous donation from a long-time Sioux Falls business. To top off the celebration, a country music star gave everyone a show.

Randy Houser put on a show for workers at John Morrell Thursday as the plant celebrates 105 years in Sioux Falls. Houser also helped present a big donation to Feeding South Dakota, 14,000 meals.

"It's awesome. I think anytime that somebody is doing good, that's what America was founded on. And that's what we should do. When we're doing good, we should use it to help other people," singer, Randy Houser said.

"It's fantastic, Sammi. I mean it's such a critically needed product for us. So any time we can get access to protein it's big for us," Executive Director for Feeding South Dakota, Matt Gassen said. 

Gassen says meats and other proteins are harder to get ahold of. That's why partnerships with companies like John Morrell's have been so crucial over the years.

"You know, it's stuff that maybe a lot of our folks that we're serving through our pantry or through some of our other programs will be providing this food to, a product that they're not going to see a lot of generally. So it's going to be a real nice surprise for them," Gassen said. 

Houser says having worked at a factory himself in the past, he enjoys putting on shows like this for hard-working people.

"I know that life, you know. And it means a lot to me to get to share some of my time with people that get an hour off work to come hang out and listen to some music and do something cool," Houser said.

Houser will also be performing Thursday night at the Sioux Empire Fair.
