Since 1991, my Saint Louis Closet Co. team and I have been giving back to the St. Louis community by recognizing, donating, and supporting a chosen charity each month. When Saint Louis Closet Co. was founded, I received unwavering support from the community and have never questioned my willingness to do just the same.
Since the beginning of 2020, our program, “Closets for a Cause”, has been able to donate over $21,000 back into the community by donating a portion of our gross sales to the people and charities we care about.
Charity of the Month—Mission: St. Louis
During the month of October, we have partnered with Mission: St Louis, a charity founded in 2007 that is dedicated to empowering people to transform their lives, families, and neighborhoods to end the cycle of poverty through education and workforce development programs.
During the uncertainties of a pandemic world, education and job security is in turmoil and the effects across the nation have been staggering. To be able to assist in Mission: St. Louis’ cause and their strides in paving a way to a better future for many people in St. Louis is important to me. With a community that made such a big impact in the beginning of my future, I hope to be able to help in my small way to do the same for others.
Throughout the months of 2020, we have assisted so many hand-selected charities in making a small difference in a big way. Saint Louis Closet Co. would not have been able to do this without the support and ongoing sales of the local community.
Thank you in believing in our mission so that we may aid in the missions of others. Community is everything and when we work together and help one another it can be a beautiful thing. At Saint Louis Closet Co. we hope to make our mark by being a shining example of community in the St. Louis area.
So far, we have partnered with some amazing organizations this year.
- Stray Rescue
- Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis
- Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis
- National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis
- SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital
- Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition
- Mission: St Louis
