Volunteer at Taste of St. Louis. Do it for the Kids

From Tom at Livefeed:
Hey gang,

It occurred to me that I didn't make clear the kind of difference that volunteering this weekend at the Taste will make! Given the averages last year, every hour that a volunteer spends at one of the 3 gates at the Taste, they will generate enough donations to fill a backpack full of food for a child who otherwise wouldn't have enough to eat, every weekend for a whole school year.

Basically what that means, is that every hour that you and/or one of your friends volunteers this weekend, we'll be able to fill a backpack full of food, every weekend for a school year, for a child who otherwise wouldn't have enough to eat.

The program that you'll be supporting has been taking children who would otherwise become high school drop outs, and is setting them up to be college grads. This is making a profound difference not only for individuals, but for our communities!

By the way, I know many of you have already signed up to volunteer this weekend. You're awesome. It's midnight so I didn't edit my list.

We appreciate your support and hope to see you this weekend. If you haven't yet let us know that you'll be supporting the event, please shoot me an email.

In gratitude,
