Sheet Metal Workers Local 36
The Sheet Metal Workers Local 36 hosted their annual golf tournament at Glen Echo Country Club on May 5, 2014 generating $20,000 for St. Vincent Home for Children. Over the past 17 years, the Sheet Metal Workers have donated over $210,000 to support our important work with children and families. We are so grateful for their continued support and dedication to our mission. The funds raised from this tournament will help so many children here at the Home, and for that we are more grateful than words can express.
“Local 36 is an amazing partner, and one of our major donors,” said Carla Monroe-Posey, Executive Director of St. Vincent Home for Children. “It’s just an incredible level of support from just one organization. Their consistent generosity really makes a difference to us and the kids we serve.”

THANK YOU to the amazing UMSL volunteer group for braving the cold on March 26, 2014 and giving our campus some much needed TLC. The grounds look great after all of the hard work.
We couldn’t be more grateful for the UMSL staff and students who spent their Homecoming Day of Service on February 7, 2014 organizing our clothing room. Thank you UMSL and the visiting Wichita State students for your amazing service!
Spring Trivia 2012
A BIG thank you everyone who came out to support Music Trivia Night on Saturday, March 31, 2012! It was a huge success and raised more money than any other Trivia Night in history! Thank you to everyone who purchased a table and those that generously gave their time to volunteer. A very special thank you goes to our emcee for the evening, Guy Phillips of Y98, who did a wonderful job entertaining the crowd and to Belmont Party Rentals for their continuous support.
United Way Days of Caring
Many thanks to the United Way Days of Caring volunteers from MICDS who came and painted the fence around St. Vincent Home for Children on June 8, 2012! We really appreciate all of your support!
In 2010, Monsanto introduced Monsantogether, a program that supports personal charitable involvement by their employees and encourages them to volunteer in their communities. On April 14, 2011, St. Vincent Home for Children Executive Director Lee Ann Taylor joined 11 other nonprofit organizations in the St. Louis area that were recognized for logging more than 100 Monsanto employee volunteer hours in 2010.
The Volunteer Recognition Breakfast was held by the Monsanto Fund and included Deborah Patterson, President of the Monsanto Fund, Jan Holloway, Chief of Staff and Community Relations for Monsanto, and St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley.
St. Vincent’s received $2,750 due to the large number of volunteer hours logged by Monsanto employees. Thank you, Monsanto, for honoring us, and for your employee’s generous volunteer hours!
A big thank you to the United Way Days of Caring volunteers from Monsanto who braved the heat doing gardening and yard work around the grotto area of St. Vincent Home for Children on June 20, 2012!
St. Vincent Home for Children is grateful for the incredible support of our friends! The financial support we receive is crucial to our ability to providing a caring, supportive and secure environment for our children. Those who provide sponsorship and in-kind support for our events provide underwriting that ensures financial success for those events.
The restaurants and celebrities who participate in our Kookin’ for Kids event make an amazing contribution that ensures that our guests have an enjoyable evening and provide financial support through their attendance.
Our volunteers – those who help us with home and grounds maintenance or those who interact and support our children make a direct difference in the lives of our children.
