On Saturday, December 14th members of our St. Louis office and their families joined more than 200 volunteers at Affordable Christmas, an event sponsored by Mission St. Louis. Affordable Christmas helps under-resourced parents provide a joyful Christmas for their children by offering them the opportunity to shop for items at drastically reduced prices. Shoppers were able to bring home toys, backpacks, warming kits and food. At the event our staff, attorneys and their families organized items, worked the register, wrapped gifts, assisted with shopping and made breakfast for shoppers.
Our St. Louis office was an official toy drive location, collecting toys and items for kids of all ages that were donated for the event. This year Affordable Christmas served 304 under-resourced St. Louis families and helped make the holidays brighter for more than 1,000 children.
