National 211 Day Celebrated In Sioux Falls



Bookmark and Share

The Helpline Center is celebrating National 211 Day by holding a unique Volunteer Sioux Falls project today, engaging over 211 volunteers at its 211 office.

2-1-1 connects people in the Sioux Empire with non-profit, social service and government agencies when they need help, or when they want to help. The number operates 24-hours a day, seven days a week, and is a free service.

Volunteer Sioux Falls is a volunteer engagement initiative of the Helpline Center, where the community is invited to help with hands-on, one-day service projects three times each year.

The Helpline Center adopted 2-1-1, an easy-to-remember nationwide information & referral number, as its access point 13 years ago. The Helpline Center takes over 50,000 calls each year on its 211 phone line from South Dakotans seeking help with basic needs, child care, healthcare, finding volunteer opportunities, crisis support, counseling, donations, information on government services and more.

Volunteers on Tuesday will make and distribute Valentines to seniors, people who are low income and veterans. Additional volunteers will make fleece blankets for the Helpline Center’s support group for youth who have lost a loved one to suicide. Volunteers will also be painting the Non-Profit Center, making 211 Bags for domestic violence victims and more.
