Who Powers You: Joe Smith and Shift Garage

Meet Joe Smith and the volunteers at Shift Garage in Sioux Falls who were the Who Powers You Contest finalists for May 11.

The nomination for Smith said, "Joe is by definition the hands and feet serving his community. Joe founded and runs the SHIFT Garage, which is a local free labor garage in both Rapid City and Sioux Falls. Because of Joe, thousands of families have reliable transportation which means they can get to work, get their kids to daycare and gain some desperately needed financial stability in their lives. You won't find Joe flooding all the social media platforms with his good deeds, he is too busy getting his hands dirty fixing vehicles for people in need. You will not find someone who exemplifies a servant more nor will you find someone who so quietly impacts a community than Joe. Joe is exactly what you'd hope for in a neighbor, friendly, loving, and willing to lend a hand. I am honored to call Joe a co worker and friend."
