A Progress Report of Community Support

November 2021
A Warm Bed, A Safe Place to Lay Your Head
Our Assistance League Outreach program helps to fulfill critical unmet needs in the community, providing services or goods on a one-time basis. This fiscal year volunteers served 4,079 individuals with 2,130 volunteer hours.
  • Beds, furniture, and household goods for a family who found themselves without a home after a father's death.
  • Beds, furniture, clothes, dishes and cleaning supplies for a mom and six children fleeing a domestic abuse situation
  • Basic household necessities and hygiene products for a mom and her four children, one struggling with a serious medical condition

These are just a few of the families Outreach served this year.
Partnering with many St. Louis agencies, these donations help families gain a foothold in their new community and provide security and a sense of home for the children.
