Here's just a small sample of the projects we have completed since 2009.
Each fall, we collect backpacks and school supplies for local schools in St. Charles. These supplies are given to students who's families are unable to purchase school supplies for their children. This is an instrumental donation drive as most years, teachers put money into a fund to help purchase items for children in need. This drive allows those funds to be focused on other thing such as winter clothing, coats, shoes, glasses, etc. Through our wonderful donors and volunteers, this drive is a success year after year.
The Christmas Store
The Christmas Store is an event where St. Charles families experiencing financial hardship can come and purchase new gifts for their children for Christmas for 10% of the retail value. Families are referred to Serve St. Charles through the school district. This event allows for families to feel pride in taking ownership of the gifts for their children without putting themselves in a financial bind. Through our donors and volunteers, we are able to serve over 350 kids per year.
Serve North county food pantry
Serve St. Charles has partnered with Serve North County to assist with their food pantry services. From donations to service days, we are looking forward to a growing partnership with Serve North County. If you have food items you would like to donate, we take donations on an ongoing basis so please contact us. Thank you.
