Youth interns' car wash yields cash for trip
The Thunder Valley Community Development Corp.'s summer youth interns have plenty of motivation to get out in the community and raise money. At the end of summer, they are all taking a trip to Minneapolis, MN, with the funds they raise.

Recently, the group had a great turnout for a fund-raising car wash at the Pejuta Haka College Center in Kyle, SD. They raised about $70 washing a total of 11 or 12 cars. They also had the e-Tanka Hot Dog Cart on hand to sell the Thunder Valley e-Tanka Cafe's famous Tanka Dogs.

The interns help run the cafe, which is a partnership between Thunder Valley and Native American Natural Foods, maker of the Tanka Bar. The cafe is located in the Tanka Bar Headquarters in Kyle.
