HURON, S.D. (AP) - Huron philanthropists Donna and Paul Christen have donated $1 million to Feeding South Dakota.

Paul Christen says he and his wife believe in the mission of the nonprofit hunger relief organization, and they want to make sure it has enough financial support.

It’s the second seven-figure gift Feeding South Dakota has received in the past year. Dale and Patricia Larson of Brookings donated $1 million in 2013.

The Christens have given big gifts before. In 2011, the couple gave $25 million to the South Dakota Community Foundation and $5 million each to the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation and Dakota Wesleyan University.
