One of the largest homeless services in Missouri, the St. Patrick Center is always in need of donations to support more than 9,000 persons annually. During this time of year, children's winter coats rise to the top of the organization's wish list as they are the first items to go. To help alleviate the shortage, USAgain-St. Louis donated 695 pounds of children's coats.
"St. Patrick Center is very grateful for the donation of coats," said Katie Joseph, Senior Coordinator of Community Development. "As the weather is getting colder, more and more homeless and impoverished people in the community come to us looking for help. A coat, that some think of as a small thing, means the world to those who do not have one. You have helped put joy into our clients' lives this holiday season."
The St. Patrick Center opens its doors on Tuesdays and Thursdays to anyone in need.
USAgain-St. Louis Transportation Assistant Keith Deak drove the 24-foot USAgain truck to the St. Patrick Center in downtown St. Louis to drop off the coats.
