Sisseton Community Clean-up


Last updated 4/26/2021 at 10:12pm

Whoa, Sisseton! We had 150 people cleaning up our city and we picked up over 200 bags of garbage in just a few short hours. We may be a small community in rural SD, but if I've learned anything since moving here 6 years ago it's that we know how to come together to make big things happen alone we can only do so little, but together we can accomplish so much.

There were some happy kids today! "Thank you for helping" bags filled with candy and money were placed throughout town for kids to find as they picked up trash. Such a great idea Joey Hamm! Thank you.

Thank you to Ronda Steiner and Brooke Wegener for all of your help today. You guys are amazing. A HUGE thank you to all of our law enforcement officers who volunteered to come out today. We appreciate all you do for our community, our youth, and all your self-sacrifice and service. It doesn't go unnoticed.

To our community donors, you made everything possible. I can't say thank you enough- 3 Bean, Rosalie's, Teal's, City of Sisseton, RCSO, Dakota Western, and Hamm Plumbing. I'm beyond grateful for the many other businesses in town who offered to donate to this event. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

We sure are an amazing community.
