On February 28, 2019, Siouxland DQ presented twenty-one area non-profit organizations with a DQ Smiles & Stories grant, totaling $100,000. Siouxland DQ received over 70 applications for the first-year grant program. Each application was considered, and cause was worthy.
DQ Smiles & Stories was created as the Siouxland Dairy Queen family believes in giving back to communities in which we live, work and do business. By providing these grants to non-profit organizations, our hope is to bring thousands of smiles and support to the children and families who need it the most in our communities. We are proud to be able to partner with the organizations listed below and help create smiles & stories for those they serve.
Please continue to check back for more information regarding the 2020 DQ Smiles & Stories grant program.
