Children’s Home Society of SD Extremely Grateful
Kieffer Sanitation is a tremendous supporter of Children’s Home Society of SD (CHS). We are extremely grateful for this company and all they do to improve the lives of children and families in the Black Hills.
All CHS programs are dependent on donations to provide services. Children’s Home Child Advocacy Center (CAC) provides expert forensic interviews of children who are alleged victims of sexual and/or physical abuse or who have witnessed extreme violence. CAC is a cooperative venture between Children’s Home Society, law enforcement agencies, the medical community, United States and State Attorneys and court services.
The primary goal of the CAC is to reduce a child’s trauma by eliminating repeated interviews and medical examinations by multiple investigative parties.. The number of children and families served at this location continues to rise. (Forensic interviews of children total 361 for the past fiscal year, and the cost for CAC to provide the specialized forensic interview exceeds $1,100 per child.)
When Kieffer Sanitation heard about this important work in our community, they took action to help by hosting an annual golf tournament to raise funds for CAC. The 5th Annual Kieffer Sanitation Trash Can Open took place at the Golf Club at Red Rock on August 29, 2018 and is on track to raise more than $35,500. Net Proceeds from this event will also be matched by a challenge donor, Rotary Club of Rapid City Rushmore!
The 2018 Trash Can Open included pre-golf celebrations, lunch, Poker Holes, a Minute-To-Win-It Putting Contest and a steak fry. Major event sponsors also enjoyed a unique dinner and wine tasting at the Rushmore Hotel the evening before the golf event. Over the past five years Kieffer Sanitation has raised more than $127,000 to benefit Children’s Home Child Advocacy Center!
But…this generous business did not stop there! Kieffer Sanitation also continues the tradition of helping Santa provide a bike and helmet for each child living at the residential treatment campus, Black Hills Children’s Home, every Christmas!
Children’s Home Society of SD is truly blessed by our friends at Kieffer Sanitation and their dedication to improving the lives of children and families in our community.
