Every year the Holiday Outreach Program assists families in need throughout the Forest Park Southeast, Central West End, and Botanical Heights neighborhoods. This year, in 2018 we expanded the program to include families in Fountain Park, Lewis Place, and the Vandeventer Neighborhoods.
With your help we were able to collect $22,500 total in monetary donations. This amount does not include all of the generous gifts and gift cards that were given to many families allowing our program to assist 41 families throughout the area.
Each holiday outreach season we also partner with local senior housing complexes to provide baskets to over 100 seniors in the neighborhood. These baskets include grocery store gift cards, blankets, and household supplies that help cut down on the need to purchase these throughout the year.
We are grateful to all of the departments and generous donors who make this program possible. Without your gifts, many families and seniors throughout the neighborhood would have remarkably different holidays. Click here to read our full report.
