Places for People is proud to participate in the Greater St. Louis Community Foundation’s “Give STL Day.”
Last year, this 24-hour period of giving raised more than $2 million for St. Louis area non-profit organizations. Today, more than 900 organizations, including Places for People, are participating in this day of giving.
Due to the high volume of generosity for giving days across the country, the national vendor, Kimbia, is experiencing some technical issues on all of the national Gives Day sites. The Greater St. Louis Community Foundation and KSDK have worked together to accept donations through a phone bank. Call 314-969-8655 to donate.
To try to donate online, visit Places for People’s Give STL Day page at https://givestlday.org/npo/places-for-people-inc.
Funds raised by Places for People on Give STL Day will be used to replenish our client assistance fund. These funds help pay for needs that arise and cannot be covered by other funds.
For example, a $20 donation will cover the co-pay for an appointment at the Family Care Health Centers satellite site at Places for People for someone who does not currently have insurance or Medicaid. Many of the clients who visit the satellite site have not been to a primary care physician in more than a year, and previously visited emergency rooms or left health concerns untreated.
Please help spread the word about Give STL Day by telling your friends, family and colleagues about this online giving event.
