NEW! AL's Closets Officially Debut!
On November 27, Assistance League of St. Louis held the official Grand Opening of Al's Closets at Adams Elementary School. Assistance League has set up these unique, fully-equipped closets in 17 Saint Louis Public Schools to more quickly respond to needs and provide basic clothing to deserving schoolchildren. View the Fox 2 News Coverage.
Jeffrey Rhone, Director, Office of Family and Community Engagement, St. Louis Public School District, along with Adams School Principal Felicia Miller and Roxie Randolph, President of Assistance League of St. Louis, were on hand to celebrate this milestone event and respond to questions from the media.
In addition to Adams, Al's Closets are available in 16 more St. Louis Public Elementary Schools: Ames, George Washington Carver, Dunbar, Ford, Froebel, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lexington, Meramec, Monroe, Oak Hill, Gilkey Pamoja at Cole, Shaw, Shenandoah, Woerner and Woodward.
This year, the new delivery model will enable Assistance League to serve more than 4,800 elementary school students with a more immediate, more responsive approach. Annually, Assistance League touches the lives of more than 44,000 St. Louisans. And for more than 30 years, this all-volunteer organization has listened to the needs of our community and developed new, better, and more efficient ways to help.
