The SALVATION ARMY Send a Kid to Camp Suitcase Drive

We are excited to be a part of this amazing community campaign!

We are partnering with The Salvation Army Aberdeen, SD, HKG Architects and Dakota 105.5 to collect camping supplies for community children attending camps this summer. There are many area youth who would like to attend camp but don’t have many of the necessary camping essentials.

We invite you to fill a suitcase, new or used and bring it to the Presentation Convent on Thursday, May 16, 2019, as Dakota 105.5 broadcasts live to collect donations. You may also bring new, individual items and we will fill donated suitcases. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

Dakota 105.5 will be serving a free lunch provided by Economy Meat Market.

Come and enjoy a delicious lunch and help out a wonderful cause!
