Yankton Hides Their Poor

Yankton hides their poor.

That’s the statement that the Yankton Morning Optimist Club portrayed to the 100 Women of Yankton Organization to convince them to donate their eighth annual give to the new Sleep in Heavenly Peace outreach in Yankton.

Sleep In Heavenly Peace is a ministry that builds beds for kids who don’t have a bed to sleep in.

Retired Yankton doctor Mary Milroy is organizing the effort to provide beds to kids in need in Yankton. She says the need is more than they could have ever imagined…

Fellow Yankton Morning Optimist Sandy Hoffner says that this event has opened the eyes to a problem that people didn’t know existed in our community…

The collective giving concept used by 100 Women of Yankton makes a significant impact on the non-profit agency that is selected to receive their semi-annual donation. Over sixteen thousand dollars will be given to the Morning Optimist Club as part of this most recent give.
