St. Louis Branch Community Outreach
 

 

On Monday, February 19th, a group of 18 volunteered at the Little Bit Foundation. Little Bit serves 5,000 elementary and middle school students in 17 St. Louis area schools with the vision to break down the barriers of poverty on a child’s ability to enter the classroom confident and ready to learn.  Little Bit’s presence in schools, working one-on-one with each child, combined with providing necessities such as clothing, shoes, food, wellness checks and eye-glasses, ensures each child’s personal dignity, and has the power to change lives. They do so with the mission that every person can make an impact in a child’s life – it just takes a “little bit” to help.

Volunteers first watched a video on Little Bit’s mission and vision.  They then spent approximately 1.5 hours sorting men, women and children’s shoes for distribution to the schools.

Those participating were: Theresa Goetz, John Keeven, Chris Linneman, Scot Bollinger, Tim Barrett, Ben Ridling, Shana Woelbling, Dan Enke, Shantel Bowers, Dawn Bauer, Pamela Hobbs, Jim Eckrich, Errol Tate, Craig Dahlgren, Josh Jolliff, Chris Krueger, and Angelica Gutierrez and her daughter.
