SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- The Sioux Falls Canaries are partnering with The Salvation Army to help community members affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Canaries are sending a portion of all E-Z book ticket sales through the month of April to the Salvation Army of Sioux Falls. The money will go toward assisting those in need with housing expenses, like rent, mortgage payments and utilities.

"During these incredibly difficult times of uncertainty, amazing organizations like The Salvation Army need the communities support more than ever," Canaries general manager Duell Higbe said. "We are hoping to do our small part to help relieve any added financial stress COVID-19 has placed on families around the Sioux Empire."

- Canned vegetables
- Shelf-stable milk
- Cereal
- Crackers
- Bread

Items can be dropped off at the Salvation Army Business and Family Services office at 900 N. Cliff Avenue. Hours are: Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
