Some Sioux Falls athletes are getting a different kind of work out as they help those in need this holiday season.
The Stampede hockey club helps Sioux Falls Cares pack up food, toys, and clothing for 500 families in the Sioux Falls area. On Wednesday, they will fill 225 boxes for families and continue the work on Thursday.
Stampede volunteers say they are happy to help with the heavy lifting, especially during the Christmas season.
"It's just a time of giving so it's good to help out people that are in need and we are just in the holiday spirit I guess,” said Stampede player Joseph Lordo.
Stampede players, along with a number of other volunteers, will deliver the boxes to families Wednesday night.
