Since March 2020 CSS has been helping local families with funding for various Covid related necessities.
December 1, 2020 we will be participating in the SD Gives Day of Giving with any donations received that day going towards helping more people in need because of difficulties resulting from the Covid-19 virus.
One single mom recovering from Covid-19 was moved to tears by the $250 gift from the CSS Covid-19 Response Fund, just enough to pay an overdue bill for internet service so she could continue working remotely from home. “When she finally recovered enough to get back to work, she discovered that her internet provider had disconnected her service. She cried when our case manager told her he would drive the check to Vast Broadband for her that day,” said Jim Kinyon, CSS executive director
Here are some assistance statistics as of Nov. 1:
We have helped 237 people with rent assistance totaling $58,206
