Our annual Miracle on 41st Street for the Children's Inn here in Sioux Falls will once again be in the Macy's wing of the Empire Mall November 28th through December 24th.

The Children's Inn is one of the nation's oldest abuse shelters and unfortunately, they are busier than ever this year, caring for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.

We will have Santa's sleigh in the mall next to the gift wrapping booth where you can drop off your donations. We have a list below of 'need' items for the Children's Inn.

To say 'thank you', everyone who donates will go into a drawing for a $500 Empire Mall gift card that will be given away on December 23rd!

It's the season of giving, during a Miracle on 41st Street for the Children's Inn with Sammons Financial Group, Great Plains Dental, and B102.7!
