It's a been a while since our last update, but we've got big things happening at BDHH! The first bit of news is... ME! I'm Amanda, and I was hired on a couple weeks ago to be the new Development Coordinator for BDHH. I couldn't be more thrilled to be joining this awesome team, and I'm fired up to get started.
A little about me: I'm originally from Detroit, MI... go Red Wings! I lived there most of my life before moving to Dallas, TX where I worked for a large photography corporation. But, I missed the seasons and the Midwest life, so I ventured my way here to Sioux Falls, SD, and I can't tell you how much I love it! I missed having crisp fall days and debating whether or not it was going to snow by the time we hit Halloween... missed cider mills and falling leaves. Though, I'll admit, I didn't miss the snow (okay, I missed it a little...).
Sioux Falls has easily won my heart, however, so I'm excited this next chapter of my life and with BDHH is right here!

In the words of House Stark, "Winter is Coming" and all of us at BDHH are starting to prep for the coming cold months when our numbers will greatly increase. Stay tuned to find out ways you can help us prepare!
