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.
So how can you 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), 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.
If you are interested in donating for our Raffle, please contact:
