Annual Heroes and Helpers Event

The 2016 Heroes and Helpers event is an exciting shopping adventure that allows children from low-income families to shop for themselves and family members during this holiday season. The Banquet will select the children for this event, and the kids will partner with area law enforcement to help with the shopping.

“This event has been held in Sioux Falls for well over 20 years,” said Police Chief Matt Burns. “It’s a great way for kids to have a positive experience with law enforcement and is another way officers can connect with their community members.”

Heroes and Helpers will begin around 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, at both Sioux Falls Target stores. The event is a partnership with area law enforcement, The Banquet, and Target. Transportation is provided by School Bus, Inc.
