VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA
Helping Homeless Youth in Sioux Falls
On April 14, 2020, Montgomery’s delivered 23 mattresses, box springs, mattress pads, bed frames and metal headboards to Volunteers of America, Dakotas, new apartments for homeless youth in Sioux Falls. The Axis180 program provides housing and life skills training to young adults ages 16-21. Through this program, VOA Dakotas is able to serve up to twenty one young adults at a time who have been identified as homeless within the Sioux Falls school system. It was through a Chamber of Commerce community appeals campaign in early 2019 that this opportunity presented itself. Dennis Hoffman, CEO and president of Volunteers of America, Dakotas, thanked Montgomery’s by saying, “Thank you to Montgomery’s for helping youth have a warm place to lay their head, to rest, and to have hope for the future.”

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TOURS
We enjoy hosting local schools old and young. This school tour included a first grade class from Sioux Falls. The students were spoiled with a tour of the store, some jumping on beds, riding in a tuck tuck and trying out furniture with Eric Sinclair.
Look for Montgomery’s every year in the Madison, SD parade. Eric enjoys driving his vintage limo while our team distributes beads. Pictured here are Eric Sinclair, his children Kyan and Giselle, CFO Laura Johnson and hiding in the backseat Neala Sinclair.
