Did you miss the Garbage Bag Gala, but still want to help the St. Louis Salvation Army fight homelessness in St. Louis? You have another opportunity August 24th at the Omni Majestic Hotel in downtown St. Louis.
The Salvation Army is holding a #HomelessHelpSTL Tweet Up August 24th from 4-7 pm. Admissions is free, but you still need a ticket. A $5 donation or 2 toiletry donations at the door are appreciated. The St. Louis Salvation Army still needs help providing goods for homeless shelters in the area. Shelters specifically need toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.
This is a wonderful and easy opportunity to get involved in your community. It’s super easy to pick up a few extra items at the store. A toothbrush and toothpaste are a few dollars. When you buy something for your family, add another to your cart and bring it to #HomelessHelpSTL. Plus, you’ll get to network with St. Louis professionals and perhaps meet new friends at a great location.
The St. Louis Salvation Army is definitely on a mission to help the homeless in St. Louis area. Last week’s Garbage Bag Gala was a huge success, raising over $19,000 for Salvation Army programs.
