Why cook when you can go out and give back to Youth In Need? Join Youth In Need at Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria in Town & Country for the restaurant’s Giveback Tuesday event on Tuesday, Dec. 17. Every delectable bite of homemade Italian food will support Youth In Need’s Emergency Shelter, and there’s nothing better than that!
Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria has chosen Youth In Need as its charity for December and will donate 100 percent of the profits from tomorrow’s sales to Youth In Need! Lunch, dinner, drinks and carryout are all included at its location at 14171 Clayton Road in Town & Country!
YPG Steps Up and Sleeps Out to End Youth Homelessness
Youth In Need’s Young Professionals Group (YPG) held its first-ever Step-Up and Sleep-Out event on Dec. 7 to raise funds and awareness for homeless youth. Not only did participants give up the comforts of home to sleep outside in the cold for one night, a reality for thousands of youth in the community, but they also raised more than $4,200 for Youth In Need!
Participants "sleep out" to raise funds and awareness of youth homelessness.
Holiday Drive Continues at Youth In Need
Youth In Need’s annual Holiday Drive is in full swing, collecting thousands of toys, books, clothing and hygiene items for the children and youth in programs throughout the agency. So many generous people and organizations have adopted a Youth In Need program or donated items from the agency’s wish list of most-needed items. Spreading the holiday magic even further, 93.7 The Bull held its 10th annual Boatload of Toys drive Dec. 7 and 8 at Bass Pro Shops in St. Charles. Radio station personalities collected donations for Youth In Need throughout the weekend and continued to share information about the agency with listeners.
There’s still time to participate! Make a donation online to support the holiday drive today!
Volunteer Celebrates 11th Anniversary
One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time. Whether volunteers commit to a long-term project or just have a few hours to give, their impact on Youth In Need is invaluable. Marlene Dean is one of those invaluable volunteers. Marlene recently celebrated her 11th anniversary as a volunteer in Youth In Need’s Head Start and Early Head Start program. Marlene began volunteering after retiring from a Head Start program out of state. Since then, she’s spent six hours a week at the Wentzville Head Start and Early Head Start Center (and an occasional three hours a week with the Warren County Head Start and Early Head Start program), assisting with files, shredding, inventory, organizing and cleaning. Youth In Need extends a heartfelt thanks and sincere congratulations to Marlene on this wonderful milestone!
