Meet Our Volunteers!

Soldier's Left Behind Campaign

As we host Holiday Block Leave that sends 5,000 military home to their families, many of our military troops at Ft. Leonard Wood will not be home for the holidays this year for one of a variety of reasons. It’s once again time for our “Soldiers Left Behind” program. The Soldiers Left Behind program provides each of the soldiers that did not go home with a holiday gift bag. We are asking for donations of the following to help make a soldier’s holiday brighter!

ü 3 full size candy bars

ü 2 single servings of microwavable ravioli, soup, or other pasta

ü One (1) 4-pack of pudding cups

ü One (1) can of peanuts or mixed nuts

ü One (1) 3-pack box of microwavable popcorn

ü 2 boxes of cracker jacks

ü 1 full size can of Pringles

ü 1 box of granola bars or energy bars

ü 1 package of Slim Jims

ü 1 package of beef jerky (3 – 8 oz. packages)

ü Individually sized Pepperidge Farms bags of cookies of goldfish crackers

If you can donate some of the above items, or make a monetary donation to help us purchase the above items, it would be a tremendous help.

If you can help, please have the donations delivered to the USO of Missouri, any Montgomery Bank location, or TitleMax at 10415 Watson Road by Friday, December 5, 2014. Please mark the donations for “Chris/Soldiers Left Behind.” Should you have a large donation and would like a pick-up of the items, please contact Chris at ctrotter@usomissouri.org or 314-429-0013.

Thank you for all you do to take care of our soldiers!!

St. Peters' Recycle City collects aluminum cans for our Pennies for Patriots program to support the USO at Lambert International Airport. The collection drive runs from from Nov. 12 each year to Nov. 11 the following year, after which the total cans collected is converted to dollars and a check is presented to the USO.

To donate your aluminum cans to Pennies for Patriots, bring them to St. Peters’ Recycle City and place them in the specially marked dumpster under the American flag in the recyclables drop-off area. For your convenience, there is another Pennies for Patriots collection container located at City Hall outside the Cultural Arts Centre entrance.
