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.
