HURON, S.D. – Farmers Union Insurance has teamed up with the state’s Expedition League baseball teams to offer fans limited-edition baseball jerseys in exchange for food items or cash donations to Feeding South Dakota.
“The Expedition League is proud to partner with two great organizations, Farmers Union Insurance and Feeding South Dakota,” said Steve Wagner, president of the Expedition League. “One of the key tenets of the Expedition League’s mission statement is to positively contribute to each of our communities and we’re excited to be a part of these jersey giveaways and food drives in South Dakota.”
Five hundred jerseys will be given away on gameday, starting at 5 p.m., at these ballfields:
· Pierre Trappers – Wednesday, July 7
· Sioux Falls Sunfish – Tuesday, July 13
· Spearfish Sasquatch – Thursday, July 22
Donation tables will be set up outside each ballfield, so game attendance is not required. Each person must bring three food items (either canned or boxed) or make a $10 cash donation to receive a jersey. Limit one jersey per person. The first 80 people to donate will also receive a free ticket to the game.
Feeding South Dakota is a member of Feeding America. The food bank has locations based in Pierre, Rapid City and Sioux Falls, serving 66 counties in the state and a total population of nearly 875,000 people.
For more than 65 years, Farmers Union Insurance has insured and protected what matters most to South Dakotans, while investing in rural communities and its commitment to the state’s agriculture industry.
