Two of the most illustrious non-profits in north city, Urban League St. Louis and Better Family Life, are reaching out on Giving Tuesday. The Urban League STL sits on Kingshighway in its historic headquarters Roberts Brothers Building, also called the Sears Building.
It is primarily part of the striving west end area which actually begins across Page Ave., to the south.Yet it serves all of metro St. Louis, including East St. Louis, IL., if there is a need to.
Just last week they gave over 2,000 families Thanksgiving miracles, with boxes of food, toiletries and cleaning supplies to assist with the holidays. And the lines were indeed long, and I was told they started at 8 a.m. way down Page at Vandeventer Ave.
It would take a whole day to list all of the wonderful things that Urban League St. Louis city does to help peole live better. So, if it is in your heart to give on Tuesday, make sure they are on your list.

Better Family Life is more of a resource leader for the community. They do host food giveaways, events and counseling. While providing classes and informational tools to help the neighborhood stay informed and stabilized. Located near the west end of St.Louis, but is clearly within reach of the north city corridor.
They want you to get into the heart of the matter.
