Members of South Dakota Wing continue to help Feeding South Dakota (FSD) get food boxes ready to send to reservation communities where unpassable roads from recent snow storms have left residents without sufficient food.

“SDWG members from across the state have generously given their time to help Feeding South Dakota with their critical mission,” said Lt. Col. Todd Epp, incident commander. “This is despite the holidays, snowstorms, and sub-zero temperatures.”

On Friday, five members worked at the Sioux Falls Feeding South Dakota SD warehouse, packing 480 boxes. Pictured at right, left to right, they were, from Lincoln County Composite Squadron, Capt. Denise Clement; from Sioux Falls Composite Squadron C/SrA Kadin Timmer, SM Skye Timmer, and C/CMSgt Wyatt Timmer, and from wing staff Col. Mary Donley. 

“In the three hours we were there to assist, we packed 480 boxes of frozen food,” said Clement. “It was a fun and rewarding experience.”

In recent days, 15 members from Rushmore Composite Squadron and Lookout Mountain Composite Squadron provided similar services in the Rapid City FSD warehouse and Pierre Composite Squadron members worked in the Pierre warehouse.
