SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Hundreds lined up at Hy-Vee Gas on 26th and Sycamore for $10 worth of free gas, some as early as 7 a.m.
Hillcrest Church was handing out 400 free gas cards worth $10 to anyone who wanted them from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
40 volunteers helped hand the cards out while others washed the windshield of cars filling up. The church has been planning the event for about four months.
“One of the things we just can’t seem to get a break from are the gas prices. And so as we were kind of brainstorming and talking to our community we discovered that these gas prices are one of the things that’s really bugged people the most. And so we said ‘well, let’s give out some free gas,’” Hillcrest Pastor Doug Bartel said.
The church planned to buy more cards if they ran out before 1 p.m. If you would like more information on Hillcrest Church, you can find there website at www.siouxfallchurch.com.
