Donate Shelter and Winter Survival Items, Clothing, and More

Our Faith in Action ministry is collecting some items to take to FOCUS Gateway City on December 10. We are collecting items for shelter and winter survival, clothing, hygiene needs, and canned goods. They are asking for specific items, so please check the list below before donating.

There are some containers in the gathering space near the drinking fountain for your donations. Please contact Jeannine Szatkowski at or 314-472-5717 with questions.

We will also be cooking and serving a meal for the guests at FOCUS on December 10. All are invited to help with this service project, but we need to know who is coming. Please sign up here.
