Hamsters USA has raised and donated funds at their annual meeting for the past several years, wanting to give back to the greater Black Hills community, which many Hamsters consider to be their second home. Their gifts help provide services to children in their own homes and communities, delivered by Children's Care personnel who drive over 10,000 miles a month to provide services.
