Financial Help Needed After Canton Flood

Financial Help Needed After Canton Flood

The city streets of Canton look just like they have for years. But it was a different scene just a few weeks ago. Eight inches of rain fell on Canton, leaving flooding in its path. Even though nearly everything seems to have dried up, some homeowners are still dealing with the aftermath even today.

"The impact of the storm isn't that visible anymore, you have a lot of people dealing with the issues of cleaning their basement or also just replacing the things that they lost," Canton City Manager Sean Pederson said.

South Dakota Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster is still in Canton continuing to provide support for flood victims.

"Currently we've had over 296 homes that have been identified as needing some type of service from the South Dakota VOAD," President SDVOD Lisa Adler said.

Adler says people have put more than 6,000 volunteer hours in Canton, but what the city needs now is financial donations.

"What we're asking the community to do is to identify if they are able to provide some level of assistance, and if so, to make sure they share that with Sioux Falls Community Foundation," Adler said.

Adler says they money will be sent to the Sioux Falls Community Foundation, then the South Dakota VOAD will give the money for those in need.

Assist them in some of the rebuild that needs to happen, especially those single parent homes, the elderly people that are on a limited income, all of them need some assistance," Adler said.

"That money will be for Canton residents, it'll probably go for those high ticket items, to offset whatever they can get from their insurance," Pederson said.

To donate money, contact the Sioux Falls Community Foundation at 605-336-7055, email
