2nd Raffle Coming up!!! Donations needed!
Since 2012, the St. Louis branch of the Missouri APWA has helped families from the St. Louis Crisis Family Nursery during the holiday season to provide a brighter Christmas morning to those in need. Last year, we were able to provide $3,200 in gifts for the Holiday Wish Bags. Our biggest year yet! We realize it is still a long time until the holiday season, but we have set our goal to again raise $3,200 or MORE(!!) to help families this year through your charitable contributions and donations.
The first raffle was held on May 23th and we have raised almost $900. We have the second raffle September 26 and we need your help!!
We are in need of items that people would want to buy raffle tickets for. Some of our wish list items would include tablets, golf foursomes, sports memorabilia, sports tickets (Cardinals, Blues (Stanley Cup Champs!)), restaurant or store gift cards, or other items that somebody like you would enjoy winning if you bought a raffle ticket. Nothing is too small, nor too large. If your company would like to support our efforts by either providing one of the items, or just making a monetary donation, please contact Theresa Goetz.
Your company will receive recognition throughout the year for your participation in the Christmas Outreach Program.
If you are interested in donating for our September Raffle, please contact:
Ms. Theresa M. Goetz (314) 446-5419 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s make this the best year ever!

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.
