SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - The Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation has established a tornado recovery fund following three tornadoes left a trail of damage Tuesday night.

Gifts to the Sioux Falls Tornado Recovery Fund can be made online at sfacf.org or can be delivered to the community foundation's office, at 200 N. Cherapa Place in downtown Sioux Falls. The funds will be used to help residents recover from tornado-related damage.

The community foundation will partner with the Helpline Center and other area nonprofits and relief agencies to evaluate needs and distribute funds to storm victims as appropriate.

We established this Fund to help our neighbors in need at this difficult time and our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been impacted.”
