In this issue: Holiday light display fundraising challenge, and Counseling program holds open house.

Holiday Light Display Just Got Brighter

Calling all $100 (or more!) donors. The wonderful family that is putting on the amazing holiday lights display to benefit Youth In Need has a challenge for all of us! They’ve arranged for a generous donor to match every gift over $100 up to $10,000, which means your $100 gift turns into $200! Donate online or via our Venmo @youthinneed. Just be sure to add “Holiday Lights” when you donate. Or drive by the light display, at the intersection of Ladue Road and Ladue Pine Woods Place, and donate there! Enjoy the display Sundays through Thursdays from 5:15 to 10:15 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 5:15 p.m. to midnight through Jan. 1, 2024.

Join Us for an Open House

We’re celebrating the re-opening of our newly remodeled St. Charles County Counseling office with an open house! Join us for tours and light refreshments to see the improvements that youth and families are sure to love. The open house is from 3 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 14 at 516 Jefferson Street in St. Charles. Guests will enjoy tours of the Counseling offices as well as our Emergency Shelter, located just across the street.

Thanks to funding from the Community and Children’s Resource Board of St. Charles County and the Missouri Children’s Trust Fund, we were able to update and add painting, flooring, lighting, water heaters, HVAC, roof, push-button entries, sidewalk, steps and signage. Come see it all!
