On March 19, 2019, the Redstone Team volunteered for the Feeding South Dakota BackPack program for a second time, continuing to “make it better.”

At the event, Redstone volunteers took part in an assembly line process of packaging food for at-risk children. The BackPack Program provides nutritious, easy-to-prepare foods for these children during weekends and holidays when school is not in session. Moreover, the program distributes more than 3,200 packages of food each week to children in the Sioux Falls School District and 10 surrounding communities.

Sarah Havlin, a Redstone employee, was one of eleven Redstone volunteers who participated in the event. Following the event, she said, “I enjoyed the fast-paced atmosphere, and the time flew by! I was impressed with the number of bags that were packed.” Sarah said she looks forward to the next time Redstone volunteers for Feeding South Dakota’s BackPack program.
