Scott and Susan Peterson were recently awarded South Dakota Retailers of the year! From this link: “Presenting the award, Cammack said the Petersons believe that for the community to be successful, they need to give back, and they do it in meaningful ways. They coordinate an annual food drive for the local food pantry. In the last six years, they have given over $100,000 and 14 tons of food. They sponsor a Crush Cancer drive that has resulted in over $100,000 in donations to local cancer charities and fundraisers in the last four years.” Scott and Susan have sponsored a food drive at their business (Scott Peterson Motors) that is based in Belle Fourche and Sturgis In the month of December, they offer discounts on service and parts if food is donated and make a $100 donation with every vehicle sold. This year the total donated was $15,148,76 with $9629.32 to the Belle Fourche Compassion Cupboard and $5519.44 to Sturgis, plus a pickup load of donated food. That is a great example of giving back to the community.
