SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Sanford Health has donated 35 acres of land in northwest Sioux Falls to the school district for a future school building.

The Argus Leader reports school board members voted to approve the donation Monday night, though there are currently no plans for the next school building.

Sanford Executive Vice President Kevin Lampe says investing in education is a good way to support the community for decades to come.

Sanford about a month ago announced a 30-acre land donation to Sioux Falls Lutheran School.
