In 1911, thirty homemakers set out to change things for less fortunate women in our community and formed the Women’s Alliance. Since that date they have been dedicated to enhancing the spiritual, physical, social and economic well-being of women and girls in the Sioux Falls area. What a wonderful afternoon last Thursday to have the Teddy Bear Den be one of the women’s organizations included in their 2011 funding. They are working hard to better the lives of women and children in our community. Thank you Women’s Alliance for providing the funding for our point books and fliers for the Den this year, you are touching the lives of over 570 new participants!
