Shower our Guests with Care

There’s not a day in the reception office at The Banquet that a guest doesn’t ask for a hygiene packet.

Many of us take for granted the soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toilet paper that we enjoy each day. The Banquet’s 2019 Christmas Project is “Shower Our Guests with Care.”  The Banquet is teaming up with Lewis Drug stores to market the ready-to-purchase personal care items. Beginning in November, “Shower Our Guests with Care” packets will be available for purchase for $9.99 at the Lewis Drug register. There will be collection boxes at the Lewis Drug stores so donors can leave the Christmas gift there.

The Banquet will need 1,500 packages to fulfill the needs of the guests who come to The Banquet. In addition to the packets, we are collecting family size laundry detergent, dish washing liquid and toilet paper. Because these packages will be pre-filled and marketed through Lewis Drug stores locally, monies that are donated through this project will be used to purchase other “luxury items” like laundry detergent, fabric softener, toilet paper and dish washing liquid. These items may also be purchased and brought directly to The Banquet at 900 E. 8th St., Sioux Falls.

Thank you for your generosity. Your gifts are truly helping many families in need!
