July 12–17, 2021

Join us for Missions Week and help reignite and re-energize mission partners throughout St. Louis. Serve alongside amazing organizations that are helping people find wholeness in all aspects of life. The pandemic had varying effects on local non-profits, and lack of time and person-power built up unforeseen barriers. Organizations need a boost in energy and momentum to help them break through. With a concerted force of person-power, our goal is to help St. Louis organizations push through the barriers they face and move their missions forward.

Pathfinder volunteers will help the family update a bedroom, which includes removing furniture, painting the room and bathroom, and assemble new beds. This will ensure that the family has met the needs for the twin girls to be able to thrive in their new bedroom! For a second project, Pathfinder volunteers will help family deep clean the house, organize and pack the basement, as well as help the 11-year-old organize and pack her room. This will ensure that the family is ready to move later in the summer!

Residents enjoy interacting with the volunteers and are enriched by the experience.

St. Louis Arc

American Red Cross
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.  We will be helping this branch to support and thank those who serve in multiple ways, specifically by making cards for those in the armed forces and blood donors!

Southside Senior Citizens Center
The Senior Center has dozens of raised vegetable gardens which provide organic produce for the center’s meal program.  They also maintain a park-like garden with assorted ornamental and Missouri native plants. By helping in this way, we will encourage growth of native plants, which help support pollinators, and help contribute to the beautification of the area!

Fresh Start Community Garden
Fresh Start offers free, fresh and organic vegetables to their community.  They use the gardens as a gathering place for their community, where members can care for the gardens and harvest produce.  Our efforts will help to inspired more of their neighbors to join in on the backyard gardening!

Epworth Children and Family Service
Epworth Children and Family Services empowers youth to realize their unique potential by meeting essential needs, cultivating resiliency, and building community! They are currently operating without a maintenance director, so we will be helping them out with some much needed landscaping! By doing this, we will take some weight off the Epworth staff and make the campus welcoming!

Operation Shower
Operation Shower hosts joyful baby showers for military families across the country! They have something called a “Shower in a Box”, and we will be buying and collecting items to fill as many of them as possible.
