Ninety-nine Siouxland area nonprofits who participated in the second annual “Siouxland Big Give,” received their share of the donations Tuesday at the Sioux City Public Museum.
Katie Roberts is the Executive Director of the Siouxland Community Foundation, which conducts the event.
She helped pass out over $114,000 to those agencies:
