Show Me Compassion Launches

Show Me Compassion Raises Resources

■ We collect donations of items that are not readily available through other social service organizations. Food and utility assistance are available through many different agencies in the St. Louis area. There are many types of assistance that are not readily available.

Help Stop Homelessness Before it Happens

■ If your house is broken and you can't afford to fix it you can become homeless. We need your cash or gift card donations to help people that are at risk of becoming homeless. Some of our city's working poor have a home and an auto but they are just one breakdown away from losing them. By collecting these resources, our trained volunteers can assess the needs of these people and deliver timely assistance to make that repair and keep someone in their home or keep their car running so they can keep working.

The Things Most Take for Granted

■ We need new items donated. Items that most of us take for granted. Small Kitchen appliances like toasters, coffee makers, can openers, etc... We need new clothing so that when we meet the need we encourage the individual. Some children in our city will never have anything but hand-me-downs without your generous donation. New clothes, shoes, or coats are a simple way to show you care.

Gift Card Donations

■ When you give a gift card you help us bring help where other assistance is not available. We collect the gift cards and only use them when we have verified the need. We don't hand them out. Our trained volunteers go with the individual in need and use the gift cards to purchase the items needed. We need gift cards for auto parts, home improvement stores, school supplies, and gasoline. Gift cards are an easy way for you to donate. Drop them in one of the collection boxes and we will take it from there.
