Dakota Layers donates thousands of eggs to Feeding South Dakota
Just in time for the Easter season, Flandreau-based Dakota Layers donated thousands of eggs to Feeding South Dakota on Tuesday.
Through a partnership with the South Dakota State University men's and women's basketball teams -- for every free throw made at Frost Arena, Dakota Layers pledged to donate a dozen eggs.
The Jackrabbits came through, making 417 free throws. And this morning, Dakota Layers came through upping the total to 540 dozen -- or 6,480 -- eggs.
"We feel it's an important part of a diet, and it's rewarding to see that we can donate this essential egg to the families that need this for their health," Dakota Layers General Manager Jason Ramsdell said.
Feeding South Dakota has received over 36,000 pounds of eggs from Dakota Layers over the years.
