St. Louis Branch Community Outreach

On Friday March 10th, a group of 20 APWA members 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.

APWA volunteers first watched a video on Little Bit’s mission and vision.  We then spent approximately 1 hour sorting and creating dental kits (toothbrush and toothpaste), school supply kits (markers, crayons, notebook, pens, pencils, etc), and matching books with stuffed animals for the students that the foundation serves.

Those participating were: John Keeven (CMT), Ron Breville (CMT), Spencer Litteken (City of Clayton), Tim Barrett (SCI), Paolla Giacomo (M3), Scott Goforth (TWM), Chris Linneman (EFK-Moen), Jeff Carvel (City of Vinita Park), Tashea Foster (City of Vinita Park), Cody Craven (City of Vinita Park), Pam Hobbs (Geotechnology), Len Madalon (EDM), Alison Graves (Jacobs), Ben Ridling (O.R. Colan Associates), Bill Thorpe (CDI), Jim Eckrich (City of Chesterfield), Scot Bollinger (City of Ladue), Wendy Cromer (Security Title), Stan Fowler (Cole), & Mike McMillion (City of Chesterfield).
