Share the Warmth

To safely play outside in a South Dakota winter, a child needs a proper winter coat, snow pants, boots, weatherproof gloves, a hat, and a scarf. The cost of these items can really add up, especially when there are multiple children in a household. The goal of Share the Warmth is to help ease the burden of the cost of this necessary winter outerwear for grade-school children. However, the event is open to all because we believe that no one should have to go without a warm coat in a cold South Dakota winter.

We rely on community donations of new and gently used winter outerwear items, Red Kettle and other financial donations, and hundreds of volunteers to make the one-day event a success. After the event, a limited selection of items is available at The Salvation Army office or at Faith Church year-round. All items are given away for free to those in need in Brookings County.

Make a Difference

Share the Warmth started nearly 20 years ago with one woman and 20 coats which she gave out of the backseat of her car. Since then, we have distributed thousands of coats and other necessary winter outerwear to those in need. Help support our mission of continuing to serve those in need by making a donation to our Share the Warmth program.
