The Southern Madison County chapter supported Restore Décor by painting furniture. They donated 14 hours of their time. Restore Décor’s mission is to foster meaningful relationships and to inspire the spirit of charitable giving throughout the St. Louis Metro East region by recycling, restoring, and reselling furniture. The proceeds from these activities help the poor and under-served population in the region and the exempt organizations serving those same individuals.
The Riverbend Chapter in Illinois spent 9 volunteer hours building 3 beds for Sleep In Heavenly Peace.
Learn More About Sleep In Heavenly Peace - All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. In Idaho and across the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and health.
That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. We’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. Our organization has grown steadily over time, and we’re working on opening more chapters in different states to serve more people.
Our Jefferson County Chapter donated $1,331.50 to Cocoa for Christ during the 2nd Quarter. Cocoa for Christ was started six years ago by a small group of American Heritage girls that put their heads together & dreamed up a fundraising project to help their troop support local foster children.
For the 2nd Quarter Community Outreach LBB Cottleville supported the FHSD homeless and displaced community members.
They collected over 300 personal care items, socks and shoes valued at $1,900. Donations are managed through the case management staff to directly support students in Parents as Teachers, early childhood, elementary, middle, and high schools, and their parents!
HUGE thanks to our generous members who purchased items and attended our Mix & Mingle as well as our community partner, CFO, all who contributed to the success of this effort!
