Annual Holiday Party
As the St Louis Chapter did not celebrate with our annual Holiday Party, we agreed to help the Ville Collaborative and Gift of Hope with their Christmas Event in North City. The Ville Collaborative is a group of organizations supporting the historic Ville neighborhood of North St. Louis. These include numerous 501 (c) (3) nonprofits and several churches located in the Ville as well as several organizations that directly contribute to the overall health and wellness of the residents there. Their annual Christmas gathering has always included baskets of items for each family and toys and gifts for each child. For our part, we donated household and personal care items for the baskets that supported about 120 families in the Ville. In addition, we also made a monetary donation so any additional supplies could be purchased. Our hope is to continue this partnership with the Ville Collaborative and participate in their holiday dinner in 2021.
