Necessities For Neighbors


You have the chance to help a family in need just by picking up a simple household item at the store. It’s called Necessities for Neighbors, and it started about seven years ago at Peace Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls. 

The Church continuously gathers toilet paper, laundry detergent, feminine hygiene products, and diapers for a giveaway on the first Sunday of each month. The reason these specific items are given away is because they can’t be covered by food stamps. 

Jackie Bailey with Peace Lutheran church says hundreds of families are helped each month by this giveaway. 

“It’s amazing. By the time they’ve made the full circle and gotten all the items there’s always a ‘thank you’ and ‘bless you.’ Yeah, they’re extremely thrilled to get what they can,” Jackie Bailey said. 

You can always drop off the the four items in need or a money donation to Peace Lutheran Church. Bailey says East Side Lutheran will also accept the donations. 

During the remainder of March, you can also drop off toilet paper at Life 96.5 or Sunshine Foods. 

The giveaway is held on the first Sunday of every month from 3-4 in the afternoon at Peace Lutheran Church.
