Each year the brave men and women that protect our cities, counties, and states find themselves needing to comfort a child in a frightening situation. One of the simplest ways to accomplish this has been to carry a teddy bear or a stuffed animal in the back of first responder vehicles.
Sioux Empire Federal Credit Union is proud to support a new community initiative called, “The Teddy Bear Posse”. Now through October 31st, our members – as well as anyone else from the community – are encouraged to bring new teddy bears or stuffed animals to collection boxes located in the lobby of all three Sioux Empire FCU branches. If you need directions to any branch, please click here. Those who donate an item will also receive a coupon for any large Papa Murphy’s pizza for only $10.
After the campaign, the teddy bears will be presented to the Sioux Falls Police Departments, Minnehaha County, Lincoln County, Rock County and Lyon County Sheriff’s Department to comfort children involved in frightening situations all throughout our communities.
Sioux Empire Federal Credit Union is especially proud to be a part of the Teddy Bear Posse, as some of the Departments involved with the project are charter members of our Credit Union!
