Prairie Tree Gives Back Week

Residents June 30, 2016
From June 13 – 16th, residents and staff members of Prairie Tree Apartments, located in Rapid City, SD, participated in their first annual “Give Back to the Community Week.”  The week started off with a food drive that benefitted Feeding South Dakota, a local hunger relief organization, that helps provide food assistance to more than 21,000 hungry individuals and families.  Donations were accepted at the Prairie Tree Office and at donation bins throughout the property.  In total, the community collected 75 lbs. of food! Tuesday marked the start of the week long pet drive that benefitted the Humane Society of the Black Hills.  The Humane Society of the Black Hills has been helping lost and abused animals for nearly 50 years.  Over 4,800 animals are helped each year, some of whom are now residents at Prairie Tree Apartments!  The residents at Prairie Tree Apartments donated a variety of different items to the Humane Society of the Black Hills, everything from pet food to cleaning supplies to blankets and towels. Wednesday saw many items such as furniture, computers, & clothes being brought in for donation to The Club for Boys Thrift Store of Rapid City, SD.  The Club for Boys Thrift Store is dedicated to providing quality and value in a customer focused environment through the generous support of the community, staff, and volunteers. Thursday, was document shredding day!  Did you miss out on the document shredding day?  No worries!  Prairie Tree has a locked shredding bin in the office available for our residents to use.  All you need to do is gather any documents you need shredded, bring the documents to the office, and deposit them into the shredding bin.  Remember, identity theft is a real and prevalent problem.  For tips on how to protect yourself from identity theft visit  A special thanks to A – Z Shredding for providing the shredding services. Friday, we gave back to our valued residents with a resident appreciation breakfast!  Over 30 residents stopped by the Prairie Tree Office to enjoy Starbuck’s coffee and fresh donuts!  Can you guess what the big topic of conversation was for everyone?  When the next resident event will be!  As of right now, we are still in the planning stages for our next resident event, but as soon as the plans are ready, we will let everyone know! With FIVE different pet friendly one or two bedroom floor plans, Prairie Tree Apartments is sure to have a floor plan that is right for you!  Residents can make use of our heated outdoor pool, picnic & grilling areas. Additionally, every apartment features a balcony or patio! Contact Prairie Tree today for more information or to setup a tour of the property!  605-342-3610 or!
