Sioux Falls Supports Safe Families for Children

On Nov. 1, members of our Sioux Falls office stopped by Safe Families for Children to deliver a well-deserved $1,000 donation on behalf of our firm’s “Ways to Give” corporate philanthropy program. Jeff Metzger, a drafter in our Sioux Falls office, nominated Safe Families to receive the contribution for his office and, along with office manager Marty Christensen, presented the check to program coordinator Tracy Folkerts.

Safe Families for Children is a national system that works to support families in need. This network of volunteer host families help parents who need temporary care for their children as they work through unmanageable or critical circumstances. To date, the system has hosted more than 35,000 families, with 93 percent of children returning home.

West Plains Engineering “Ways to Give” was launched in 2018 with the goal of empowering employees to make a difference in their local communities. Not only does each have a voice in selecting causes for our firm to support financially, but each is also recognized and rewarded for getting out and participating in local events and initiatives that are personally important to them.

Congratulations to Safe Families and thank you to Jeff for making a difference in Sioux Falls!
