Sammons Financial Group Donates $20,000 to Tracy Area Animal Rescue

SIOUX FALLS, SD--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - Sammons Financial Group (SFG) recently donated $20,000 to Tracy Area Animal Rescue (TAAR), to help purchase items and build an infrastructure that will better position the organization to continue helping animals across the region. Funds will aid in the development and improvement of facility areas and adoption and awareness programs.

"This was a donation that was influenced by our employees," said Robert TeKolste, President Shared Services. "Our employees are given the opportunity to request donations for organizations that have special meaning to them; the best investment of our dollars is with organizations that our employees are passionate about. We hope it goes a long way toward helping the mission of TAAR."

Each year, SFG offers employees of its member companies the opportunity to request donations for local non-profit organizations through the Community Impact Challenge. The employees must present the work done by the non-profit, the need, and the opportunity for employee volunteer efforts.

TAAR is being recognized for their service to animals in the community, specifically, their willingness to help South Dakota dogs in need. Their involvement with reservation dogs of Pine Ridge, as well as animals with the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society, is the driving force behind the donation. "We want to thank Sammons for their generosity -- it will truly impact our ability to save the lives of animals in need," said TAAR Board member Cathy Nelson.

In addition to the monetary donation, SFG Member Company employees will also be donating their time to volunteer opportunities throughout the next twelve months.
