Give STL Day is May 5, 2020. New Heights is registered with a goal of raising $15,000. We will be promoting this day of giving throughout the remainder of April. Your tax deductible contribution is priceless. And in the current state of emergency, your contribution means children will continue to eat at least two healthy meals five days per week. It also means that youth will have access to free tutoring online. Make the decision today to be a Change Agent impacting lives May 5.
On April 9, 2020, Governor Parson announced that all Missouri schools shall remain closed for the rest of the academic school year. This means no more school breakfast and lunch for 263,253 Missouri children living in poverty. We have set up multiple drive-thru food distribution centers to provide packaged meals to children and youth, ensuring no child goes hungry. We have committed to distributing 1,000 meals daily to aid families in need. Visit one of our distribution centers if you are in need of meals or please share this information with anyone who can benefit from it. No documentation is required to participate. A flyer is attached.
