18th Annual Back-to-School Program is coming August 13

Screen Shot 2016-07-13 at 10.34.07 AM

As summer winds down, most of us at some point reflect back on happy childhood memories of preparing for the school year.  Remember the anticipation of seeing who was in your class; picking out the right clothes; and getting new school supplies like pencils, pens, erasers, notebooks, backpacks, folders, paper, binders and so much more. Sound familiar?

Unfortunately, too many of today’s school-aged children in the city of St. Louis won’t share the memory of getting new school supplies without your help.

Please join Guardian Angel Settlement Association to make our 18th Annual Back-to-School Program another A+ effort.

This year, GASA’s Back-to-School Program will be held on

Saturday, August 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Peabody Elementary School, 1224 S. 14th Street, St. Louis, MO, 63104.

Your donations provide backpacks, school supplies and a new pair of shoes to 800 children in elementary, middle and high school who are from low-income families; and, enables GASA to make its other year-round programs accessible to thousands of families in our community.

#GivingTuesday

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

Christmas Program 2014

Season’s Greetings,

With a little time and support, many people can get their lives back on track. Renee, a young single mother of three knows this all too well. She graduated from college recently and is starting a new career in 2014. That journey seemed impossible a year ago. After several surgeries, Renee was forced to drop out of school and quit working, leaving her unable to care for her children. Her world unraveled when inspectors scheduled her home for condemnation.

Guardian Angel Settlement Association was able to help Renee find an apartment and provide her with utility assistance, budgeting help and community resources while she got healthier. This year she was able to go back and finish college, which prepared her for work in the medical industry.

Your donations help Guardian Angel assist thousands of St. Louisians like Renee every year. Thanks to you, our services kept parents working, young children learning, seniors living in their own homes, and food on the table for more than 7,000 people in 2014. We were also able to offer new programs, like a self-sufficiency workshop series.

2014 Christmas Program

The Annual Christmas Program, co-sponsored by Kingdom House and St. Vincent DePaul Parish, is another great way to help people in need! Your donations will provide gifts, clothing and food to 600 families and 500 seniors.

Thanksgiving Dinner 2014

August 26, 2014

web-header

Dear Friend:

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year to gather at home with family, or to spend as guests of relatives, friends and acquaintances. It is an occasion to share memories or create new ones. Most of all, it is a chance to express thanks for all that is good in our lives. However, for the less fortunate, Thanksgiving can be a harsh reminder of financial struggles.

Did you know 50 Million Americans go hungry every day? That is 1 out of 6 people, 2 out of 3 seniors and 1 out of every 5 children. In zip codes 63104 and 63118 where Guardian Angel provides hunger relief at its food pantry, about 11,000 St. Louisians must decide each month whether to eat less or use money meant for other household expenses towards groceries. In fact, hunger in Guardian Angel’s service region is almost twice the national average. For these families, Thanksgiving can be an unnecessary source of anxiety and hardship.

Guardian Angel Settlement Association and St. Vincent DePaul’s Parish co-sponsor a community dinner on Thanksgiving Day to nourish the body and mind of those in need. Open to the public, this event feeds over 600 people, including families, seniors and the homeless each year. You can give relief and hope to others by making a monetary donation, or by giving turkeys and other food items to support this community dinner. As always, surplus donations support year-round programming for those struggling with poverty.

Christmas Program 2013

Dear Friends,

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.” Guardian Angel Settlement Association would like to thank everyone that supports our service to the less fortunate.

We provided help to 7,048 at-risk individuals in 2012. Our services kept seniors housed, young children fed, families healthy and parents working. Your donations have funded our early childhood development center and vital emergency assistance services like our food pantry, thrift store, and utility and rental assistance program, as well as our self-sufficiency programs.

Co-sponsored by Kingdom House and St. Vincent DePaul Parish, the Annual Christmas Program is one of many ways Guardian Angel provides relief and hope to our neighbors. Your contributions provided gifts, clothing and food to over 600 families and 500 seniors last year alone. Your donations fill our Christmas Shop where parents are able to shop for clothing and gifts that they know their children will love! (Suggested gifts list enclosed.) Seniors request specific gifts that you purchase and wrap, and our volunteers home deliver with a box of food. As always, surplus donations support our important year-round programming.

  • Children – Donate new, unwrapped toys and clothing. (any age, any gender)
  • Parents – Donate new, unwrapped clothing and household items.
  • Seniors – Donate one new, wrapped requested item per senior.
  • All – Donate food staples and household items.

Guardian Angel is committed to providing a hand up, not a hand out. Therefore, all Christmas Program participants are also involved in other services at GASA to help them become more self-sufficient.

Thank you for supporting our mission to improve the quality of life for those in need. Please send the enclosed donation confirmation form by December 6th to Guardian Angel (1127 N. Vandeventer). Gifts and Food should be dropped off Sunday, December 8th at St. Vincent’s Parish (1408 S. 10th Street) from 10am-4pm.

If you have questions about the Christmas Program or would like to arrange an alternate delivery date, please contact Denise West, Social Services Director at (314)773-9027.

Warmest Holiday Wishes,

Jessica Brandon, MBA, MS, NCC
