Sioux Falls VA Wreath Donation

Residents January 8, 2018
On December 14th, 2017, our team in Sioux Falls, SD took holiday wreaths to the Sioux Falls VA Medical Center.  The team members distributed wreaths to Veterans that were around the VA Medical Center for a doctor’s visit and delivered wreaths to the some of the patients.  In total, the Sioux Falls team distributed and handed out 200 wreaths.  The 200 wreaths were decorated by the residents at Canterbury Apartments, located in Sioux Falls, SD.  In total, it took the Canterbury residents around 40 hours over a couple of months to decorate the wreaths.  Thank you to all of the residents who helped decorate the wreaths!  Thank you to all of the Thies & Talle staff members who helped decorate, transport, and handout the wreaths! The VA wreath donation event was setup by our very own Helen Ganske, Sioux Falls Regional Manager, who has been coordinating this event for the past 15 years.  For the past 30 years, Helen has been very involved in the Sioux Falls community, she also helps out at The Banquet, The Mission, & St. Francis House.  Helen started the wreath donation event as a way to give back to Veterans, but to also honor her husband, father, brothers, & nephew who are all Veterans.  A special thank you goes out to all of our amazing vendors who made this event possible.  Thank you to: Advanced Pest Control, Kut N Kill, Pivot Companies, S&D Johnston Painting, Karl's TV, Thornton Carpets,  Best Choice Carpet Cleaning, J & S Concrete, PPG Paints, Service Master and Presto-X.
