Nordstrom's Cares About The Community

Here at Nordstrom’s we believe in faith, family, & community. We are grateful for the 50 years we have been in business, and it’s the community that surrounds us that makes it all possible. That’s why Nordstrom’s Automotive makes it a point to give back to the community, so we wanted to highlight some of the non-profits & organizations that we work with to try to help give back to the community that makes us whole.

Food & Nutrition
Friday Food Giveaways | The Faith Temple Food Giveaway
Mission Statement:

“Our mission is simple; We want to help end hunger in South Dakota.”

History:

The food giveaway started in May of 2009, in the parking lot of Faith Temple Church in Sioux Falls, SD. At the first week of the giveaway, 69 people attended the event less than 2,000 pounds of food was given away. As the weeks went on, hundreds of people showed up for the for the weekly giveaway. The church parking lot was filled to its capacity, resulting in people parking up to many blocks away. When the weather started to get colder in October of 2009, the giveaways were moved to the Armory Building on the campus of the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds. The building provided shelter from the extreme weather in the winter months, and the drastic heat during the summer. In 2013, the Nordstrom and Johnson families donated the funds to build a permanent structure on the campus of the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds, guaranteeing that the giveaway would be held on every Friday. In addition to physical food, at some giveaways we also distribute items like: Bombas socks, oral care items, personal care items, and other items.
