Saint Louis Closet Co. is proud to announce that Closets for a Cause has positively impacted more than 12 nonprofits over the course of one year, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Each month, a percentage of our sales has been donated to a charity of our choosing – resulting in over $40,000 being distributed back into our community. Next up is April’s selection, Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri.
Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri
This outstanding organization is leading the way to end Alzheimer’s (and all other dementia) by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri has operated in the St. Louis area since 1981, serving 86 counties in Missouri and 10 in south-central Illinois.
A Note From Brenda Stewart
“We are so grateful to Saint Louis Closet Co. for including us in their inspiring initiative to support worthwhile causes in the St. Louis area,” said Brenda Stewart, chief operations and development officer of Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri. “The dollars generated through Closets for a Cause will fund programs and services for families living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, and also advance critical research to find a cure for this disease.”
Funding More than a Mission
Part of Saint Louis Closet Co.’s donation will be used by Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri to support families who are caring for a loved one and to fund research projects in 24 countries around the world. Money raised through April’s Closets for a Cause will also fund the nonprofit’s advocacy efforts, nationally and locally, along with awareness of the disease and the association. Last year alone, Alzheimer’s Association was able to assist 28,000 people.
Alzheimer’s Association’s 24/7 Helpline
Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri also has a helpline, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can reach them by calling 800-272-3900. Additionally, information on the disease, local resources, and support services can be found on their website: www.alz.org/greatermissouri.
