Closets for a Cause
Saint Louis Closet Co. Monthly Giveback Program
Jennifer Williams, owner and founder of Saint Louis Closet Co., and her team have been giving back to the St. Louis community since their opening in 1991. With such amazing support from the community, Jennifer and her team have never questioned giving back, which has been a critical part of her business since its opening.
Due to this pay-it-forward culture, Jennifer and her team decided to start a monthly program recognizing, supporting, and donating to a single charity. Hence, Closets for a Cause came to fruition. Each month a percentage of all sales will be donated back to the chosen charity. By collaborating with the non-profit organizations, Jennifer hopes to also raise awareness through blog posts, social media, and emails to her customers and inspire the wonderful and generous community of St. Louis.
Listen to Jennifer Williams talk about Closets for a Cause and giving back on the KTRS McGraw Show!
Charity of the Month, August 2020 –
KidSmart is a not-for-profit organization based in St. Louis, MO that was founded in the year 2000 by Jennifer Miller, a local educator, who believes that every child, regardless of age, race, or socioeconomic background, deserves daily access to the most critical tools needed to empower learning and success in school. In 2002, she opened Missouri’s first, and still today, only, free educational supply store, known as the “The KidSmart Free Store.”
School supplies are THE critical educational resource for children in impoverished communities. Before KidSmart, students in nearly 4,000 “KidSmart classrooms” in the St. Louis area, had to try to learn and succeed in school, without basic, essential tools such as pencils, paper, folders, books, markers, rulers, scissors, and glue.
KidSmart has built a community-wide collaboration, which provides critical, stable educational resources for students whose families live in poverty. Since opening in 2002, KidSmart has placed $60 million in free school supplies directly into the hands of 200,000 local area students in need. The free supplies are distributed throughout each school year to students in 161 local schools, 4,000 classrooms, in our highest poverty neighborhoods.
“KidSmart and 200,000 St. Louis students in need would greatly benefit from the extraordinary generosity and kindness from Saint Louis Closet Co. Studies show that students with access to quality school supplies report a 75% increase in self-esteem. With this donation, KidSmart will be able to collect an even larger amount of supplies and resources for the students we serve!” -Jennifer Miller, KidSmart Founder & CEO
