The Story

On nights when temperatures are predicted to be below 20 degrees Winter Outreach seeks to provide assistance to our most vulnerable St. Louis residents -- homeless men, women, and children.

St. Louis Winter Outreach provides rides when shelter space is available as well as protective gear to survive winter weather. Hypothermia is a significant risk and dry gear can be a literal lifesaver. 

Funds raised will be used to purchase supplies - hats, gloves, scarves, socks, blankets, snacks and other emergency items.

We operate several emergency warming shelters also and funds may be used to purchase supplies to support the good work there, too.

*St. Louis Homeless Winter Outreach is a grassroots organization and donations will not be tax-deductible.

Countless hats, gloves, scarves, socks, blankets and supplies have been purchased with your donations. Everyone please keep your fingers crossed for warm weather!
