Moved in and ready to help
Owen's Outfitters is all moved in to the new headquarters and we are ready to help the community!
Thanks to an extremely generous grant from the South Dakota Department of Health Maternal and Child Health, we have been able to purchase everything we need to get the location up and running, including signage, shelving, office furniture, tools, cleaning products, informational materials, retail supplies, plus so much more (even bright pink bags for customers to take away their goodies). There is still work to be done in the space as some pieces remain on order, but the shelves are already starting to fill up with donations and inquires are already coming in from the community for much-needed items.
Some highlights so far:
- Meeting the founder of Sealey's Closet, who runs a similar program here in Sioux Falls and who has been so generous with her time and resources while we get set up
- Meeting community resource workers as the word spreads about Owen's Outfitters and The Legacy Foundation
- Setting up clients with their first equipment loans, including some really high-end items like power chairs
- Receiving new donations and never knowing what will come through the door... it's like Christmas every day!
If you or someone you know is in need of equipment or medical supplies, please give us a call at 605-215-0884 or visit us at our new location at 1000 N. West Avenue, Suite 310, Sioux Falls, SD 57104.
Hope to see you there soon.
