Walk for Warmth strolls through downtown Rapid City
RAPID CITY, S.D. — The ninth annual Walk for Warmth, a fundraiser for families in need, took place in downtown Rapid City on Saturday.
Walk for Warmth is put on by the Salvation Army and Black Hills Energy is a corporate sponsor of the event. Whatever money is raised will be matched up to $10,000 by Black Hills Energy. The money goes towards helping families pay their utilities bill, either a portion of it or the whole thing depending on the circumstance.
“So we’re able to provide assistance to families who are in danger of getting their utilities shut off and keep their homes warm in the winter.” said Javier Moreno, Black Hills Area Coordinator for Salvation Army.
The walk started with a presentation of the colors and a ribbon cutting. Dozens of people of all ages took part in the walk which started at main street square and looped around downtown Rapid City.
