Significant Honor Bestowed Upon Assistance League

This significant honor, the 2018 Community Service Award, was bestowed upon them in the form of a special grant by Commerce Bank President and CEO, Robert S. Holmes. The grant, funded by the William T. Kemper Foundation-Commerce Bank, Trustee, and the Commerce Bancshares Foundation, was made to honor the 500+ volunteers of Assistance League and to benefit Operation School Bell.® Suzanne Pratl, President of Assistance League of St. Louis, accepted the award in honor of the members of Assistance League.
Filling Hungry Bellies and Hungry Minds
Imagine…..you come home one late afternoon and find three young children sitting on the front stoop of your home. You don’t know them. What would you do? What would you think? As reported by the St. Louis REVIEW (1-11-18), this did happen to Kim Davis (pictured left with Barb Doering) in the Ville neighborhood of North St. Louis. A bit startled in finding the three of them firmly planted on her front step, Kim asked if she could help.
Operation School Bell® Wraps Up for 2017-18
Operation School Bell had another great year of bringing smiles and a sense of pride to nearly 3,500 St. Louis area students at 29 schools who received crisp new uniforms during our 59 dressing days. In addition to the traditional uniform shirts, pants, fleece, socks, underwear, toothbrush and toothpaste--and the ever popular book of their choice--each child this year received a warm hat, gloves and a belt! Also new this year, Operation School Bell is providing the schools with extra clothing and hygiene kits to be available as needs arise.
