Kessler’s has been actively involved in the growth and promotion of Aberdeen, SD, and our surrounding community for over 70 years. Kessler’s continues to give generously to local charities and local causes as we believe that it is vitally important to reinvest by contributing to organizations and issues that are important to these communities.
Kessler's has teamed up with Safe Harbor for the past 3 years to raise awareness and funds for the organization. Because of the tremendous support of our community, Kessler's has been able to host the largest donut buffet in the state of South Dakota and donate almost $8,000 in funds to Safe Harbor. We look forward to continuing this tradition and can't wait to see you all back in the store for the next Donut Days!
Dollars for Scholars program
To assist area schools financially, Kessler’s started the Dollars for Scholars program. Schools collect Kessler store receipts and turn them in for a 1% rebate on the receipt totals. Since establishing the program, Kessler’s has given nearly $1,000,000 to our area elementary, middle and secondary schools. This has been a successful program we plan to continue indefinitely.
