Bill Hough, Rapid City

Bill fulfilled his second three-year term on the LSS Foundation board, serving from 2009 to 2014. As a retired investment broker, Bill’s depth of financial knowledge has been invaluable. He has been a mentor for development staff, an advocate for those we serve, and a visionary and inspirational leader in the community for LSS.

Xcel Energy, Sioux Falls

Xcel Energy’s faithful support and generous gifts have touched LSS and those we serve. For seven years, Xcel
Energy helped fund STEP classes—Skills That Employ People. Thanks to this support, more than 700 new Americans have been able to improve their workplace English skills, enriching their experience and opening new employment opportunities.

Canton United Methodist, Canton
Bethany Reformed, Canton
Our Savior’s Lutheran, Wessington Springs

These congregations have helped LSS Disaster Response mobilize and provide services effectively and efficiently. On June 16, excessive rain caused flooding in both Union and Lincoln counties. On June 18,
a tornado ripped through Wessington Springs. LSS Disaster Response was successful because of the partnership with these local churches.

Canton United Methodist opened its doors to house the Volunteer Service Center and to house numerous AmeriCorps volunteers. Bethany Reformed opened its doors to house volunteers and allowed its kitchen and multi-purpose room to act as a cafeteria to the many volunteers active in recovery efforts. Our Savior’s Lutheran housed the LSS Volunteer Services Center and opened its church doors for confidential counseling.
