Volunteer Partnerships in South Dakota

Sioux Falls employees volunteer at nonprofits


We are proud of the Xcel Energy employees in South Dakota, many of whom spend countless hours providing leadership and volunteer services to nonprofit organizations in our communities.

Day of Caring
Each September Xcel Energy employees and retirees, along with their friends and family members take a day to volunteer in the community on the Xcel Energy “Day of Caring.”  In 2013, 10 Xcel Energy employees and retirees volunteered at the Salvation Army. “It’s wonderful to see so many Xcel Energy employees and retirees volunteering their time and talent to give back to the community,” said Major Betty Bender, Salvation Army, Sioux Falls, SD.

Lions Club Pancake Days
In April each year, you will see Xcel Energy employees volunteering at the annual Lions Club Pancake Days serving food, cleaning tables and pouring coffee.  The money raised from the event goes to help aid the vision and hearing impaired in the community.

YMCA Camp Tepeetonka
Xcel Energy employees have a special relationship with the YMCA and their new Camp Tepeetonka located on Xcel Energy land near the Angus Anson Plant along the Sioux River in northeast Sioux Falls. Employees have helped develop walking trails, planted 40 blue spruce evergreen trees and cleaned up trash and debris along the road and forested area in and around the camp.  Employees have “adopted” the camp which hosts 60 to 80 youth daily during the summer months.

Junior Achievement
Employees in South Dakota volunteer their time and talent to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy through the Junior Achievement program.  Volunteers go into K-12 classrooms to teach young people the skills needed to ensure a successful future such as financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness skills.

Community Blood Bank
The Sioux Falls Community Blood Bank “blood mobile” stops at the Xcel Energy Service Center in Sioux Falls annually.  Employees donate needed blood to the hospitals and clinics through the nonprofit organization.
