PIERRE S.D. – Governor Kristi Noem has officially proclaimed November as South Dakota Month of Caring.

This came from the work of the South Dakota Student Council Association (SDSCA), which is co-sponsored by the South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA). The executive board first envisioned just having student councils throughout the state go out on do something that benefits their communities, but it was soon realized that it could be so much more than that. They want South Dakota Month of Caring to be something that ordinary people, businesses, and nonprofits could participate in.

“We therefore encourage ordinary people, businesses, and nonprofits to take part in the rich tradition of caring in South Dakota and to go out and perform good deeds in their respective communities,” said the release from SDHSAA.

They ask that any good deeds performed are posted on social media with the hashtag #SDCares.
