Assistance League of St. Louis held its second annual Discovery Day at The Magic House on September 25 as part of its Steps to Success Program. On this exciting day, 151 children from Hazelwood School District’s Larimore Elementary School received new socks and athletic shoes, enjoyed a variety of fun learning activities and went home with a brand new book.

 They also had snacks and a healthy lunch!  A big "thank you" goes to our event sponsors Ascension Health, The Magic House Grandparent Scholarship Fund and the Vatterott Foundation.

In addition, kudos to Shoe Carnival for their continual support of Steps to Success, providing shoes at a discounted price, as well as gasoline and employees to staff and supply the rental truck which brings shoes to each fitting. We couldn’t do this work without our wonderful community partners and of course all of our members who so generously volunteer their time. There were 86 Assistance League volunteers to help students enjoy the day’s events!
