The Salvation Army to hold its $20 challenge Saturday in Sioux Falls

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., - “I don’t know if it was the first or second year after we moved here, some friends heard me talking about it, and they didn’t drive, so I said, ‘well I’d be glad to take your money along when I drop mine in,’ so that’s what I did,” Good Samaritan Society - Prairie Creek resident, Jane Egan said.

She started doing that about 3 years ago. Now each year she lets other residents know about the $20 challenge. Now she’ll drop the money she’s collected in the kettle on Saturday.
