75 Branch Out volunteers still needed for Saturday
By From staff reports

Sioux Falls area companies and groups are being encouraged to spend Saturday, May 4 “branching out” to help seniors and people with disabilities who need storm cleanup assistance.

The Sioux Empire United Way, Argus Leader Media and the Helpline Center will host the event, and 75 more volunteers working in teams are needed. Each team will be assigned to help at least one homeowner. Volunteers will be asked to haul branches out of backyards and rake the properties. They will also be encouraged to haul the branches to a drop off site if possible.

Businesses and groups can register to participate at or they can dial 211. Volunteers must by 18 years of age or older.

Companies that can’t provide volunteer assistance can contact the Helpline Center for other ideas on ways to get involved, including raising funds for the Storm Recovery Fund at the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation.
