Scheels gives back to Siouxland after 2nd Annual Day of Giving

A local sporting goods store is giving back to the community once again.

Scheels held its second annual "Day of Giving" today, inviting more than 40 Siouxland area non- profit groups to the store to receive a donation to support their work.

"We also really wanted to host this day because it's a really great opportunity for our associates that are working really hard throughout the year. To see the contributions we make to the community and to be a part of us giving back as well, it really creates a great structure here for our organization to promote that kind of giving," said Scheels events coordinator Samantha Rosenbaum,

One non-profit says this donation is a big help to his group because it receives no funding from the government, just donations from the public.

"This donation will actually help us pay our bills, being that we have a 5,000 square foot facility and we house up to 126 people, so this could be anywhere from snack foods to blankets and socks, underwear, daily necessities that we give to them," said Josh Levowich of the Warming Shelter.
