Every year, Crider Health Center collects new and gently-used coats to be distributed to clients directly by our staff based on the client’s needs. during this time, we also collect new toys to be given during our holiday program Season of Giving. You can help by hosting a drive at you local business, school, or just by asking friends to clean out their closets.
For more information or to find out where you can donate, contact Shaun Sparks at 636-332-2134.
This special evening provides the culmination of the entire community’s effort to help provide holiday cheer for those in need. Through a coat drive that spans five St. Louis-area counties, toy donations from individuals and companies, along with monetary donations that help supply more gifts for the children who receive services through Crider Health Center.
While the children make gifts for their parents/guardians, their parents or guardians “shop” for the perfect items for both the child associated with Crider and all of the children in their home. Nobody is left out, including all those who might need a coat, hat, gloves or home-crafted scarf to stay warm during the winter with options for all ages and styles.
Get involved as a volunteer at the Season of Giving event and see the joy provided our families. You can also donate a winter coat or a gift to help spread holiday happiness.
