Impact Statements

The following are excerpts from impact statements provided by some of our community partners.

"The suits and clothes donated by Assistance League of St. Louis have been instrumental in building the character and self-esteem of the boys. I knew that this partnership was going to be able to create a better version of boys who were in need of change and adjustments in their lives." (Full letter)

"The Assistance League partnership is a great resource which has improved our ability to provide specific essential services to our program participants. Having access to those essentials has helped tremendously in removing barriers to work." (Full letter)

Lesley Harris, Community Resource Specialist
Mission St. Louis – Beyond Jobs Program

"The impact of the Assistance League goes beyond donations and volunteer efforts. The Assistance League is a bridge-builder for our community, connecting the Head Start Program of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis with long-term partners looking to improve our students’ academic and social well-being. The Urban League Head Start/Early Head Start program appreciates the tremendous support and partnership of the Assistance League. Without their countless efforts, the Head Start program would have had a much harder time navigating the landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic." (Full letter)
