This visit marked a “first” for the all-volunteer organization that annually serves more than 30 schools across St. Louis.  Typically, the 7,800 students who get new uniforms, clothing and other items annually come to Assistance League headquarters for uniform fittings. Assistance League of St. Louis also maintains closets in 19 of the Saint Louis Public Schools so that students may receive necessary clothes and other items on a year-round basis.
