The Chamberlain Squad of the South Dakota Highway Patrol received around $1,000 from the program "Food for the less Fortunate" to purchase food baskets for distribution within the area, according to Sgt. John Koenig of the SDHP.

Funding for the program comes from the annual South Dakota Peace Officer's wild game feed. Lyman County Deputy Don Jennings assisted HP Officer Mike Welter in delivering 14 baskets in the Reliance, Kennebec, Presho and Vivian area Wednesday, December 15th. Each box contained a turkey, potatoes, stuffing cranberries, and vegetables, all the fixings for a family's Christmas dinner.
