With your help we were able to make our two latest social responsibility efforts a rousing success. Both the annual backpack food drive and the Toys for Tots drive brought in plenty of goods, giving everyone a chance to enjoy the season.
The backpack food drive, which distributes food to students at local schools on Fridays so they have enough nourishment during the weekend, brought in over 750 non-perishable items. These items were then donated to local schools coordinating with the branches, such as:
- Wedgewood Elementary for the North County branch
- Blades Elementary for the South County branch
- Windsor Elementary for the Arnold branch
- High Mount Elementary for the Swansea branch
- Affton School District for the Watson branch
The Toys for Tots Drive was also a huge success in all of our branches, temporarily turning our lobbies into portraits from Christmas cards.
