Volunteering in St. Louis

A bitch would like to post the following St. Louis volunteer opportunities. A certain JewishIguanaGirl requested more info. and this bitch is more than happy to provide some!

Keep in mind that there are literally multitudes of agencies and organizations in need of volunteers in every city. Getting started is easier than you think!

Food Outreach
(314) 652-3663
Food pantry and provider of meals to men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS. Check out the site and there is a list of volunteer opportunities! My ass has heard great things about the volunteer experience here.

Habitat for Humanity St. Louis
My kind of faith-based initiative! A bitch has participated in a build and it was an amazing experience! Check out the site for more information on volunteer needs and opportunities. Habitat is building strong communities through decent housing, chil’ren!

Haven of Grace
A shelter for homeless teen moms. They need babysitters to watch the chil’ren when the moms are in enrichment classes. They also have fundraising events that need support throughout the year. Check out the site for more information.

Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club
You name it and this club has it. They are in need of tutors in almost every subject, volunteers to coach sports and the facilitate many of the other activities offered at the club. Check out the site for more information. My ass has had some serious fun trying to act young up at the club.

Planned Parenthood – St. Louis
Education, contraception and medical care. Help them out when they need it. Check out the site for volunteer information.

Stray Rescue of St. Louis
A bitch’s sorta-beagle was adopted from the pound in Dallas. My sister’s three-legged Chow mix, Sweetie, was given a second chance at life through Stray Rescue. Stray Rescue picked Sweetie up on the North side after she had been shot in her front leg. They secured medical treatment, saved her life and provided her with a foster home. This no-kill rescue shelter is in need of foster homes, donations, dog-walkers, weekend foster homes and a ton of other things. Save a life and adopt from a shelter, not a puppy mill...and support Stray Rescue or Sweetie will have to correct your ass!

Feel free to shoot a bitch an e-mail if you have any questions about these organizations!
