Thrivent Financial, The Sioux City Explorers and Support Siouxland Soldiers joined forces during the July 3rd Explorer’s baseball game to raise awareness and monetary donations for Siouxland Veterans in need.
During the game Thrivent Financial presented Support Siouxland Soldiers with a check on the field; the Explorer’s auctioned off camouflaged jerseys and the fans took up a collection to assist Siouxland Veterans with food and personal care items. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the Marina Inn, Luciano’s and other anonymous donors provided gift baskets to be raffled off. Together over $9,500 was raised for Support Siouxland Soldiers. The evening wrapped up with an incredible win over Sioux Falls and post-game fireworks show by Lantis Fireworks.
Thrivent Financial and the Sioux City Explorer’s have raised over $63,000 over the course of six years to support Siouxland Veterans, Service Members and Military families. Support Siouxland Soldiers provides free meals, groceries, care-packages, housing assistance and emergency financial assistance to Siouxland Veterans.
