St. Louis Branch Community Outreach

Donations Needed for Our ONE & ONLY Raffle of the Year

Since 2012, the St. Louis branch of the Missouri APWA has adopted families from the St. Louis Crisis Family Nursery during the holiday season to provide a brighter Christmas morning to those in need. This year with our restrictions due to COVID, we are raising money from the bingo event and our one and only raffle to buy gift cards for families who cannot afford a special gift for their children during the holidays.    

The FINAL RAFFLE will be held December 10th at our virtual Holiday Party. Our special guest Santa will be present to read off the Naughty & Nice list of raffle winners!



So how can you help?????

At our December virtual event, we will be raffling off chances to win cool stuff.  That’s where you come in.  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), 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 donation with the understanding that we may purchase one of the items with the donation, please contact Theresa Goetz.

We appreciate the raffle donations we've received so far from

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.
