MEAL DONATIONS TO ESSENTIAL WORKERS
As a thank you to St. Louis essential workers for all they do to ensure our community is healthy and safe during this crucial time, Fair Saint Louis volunteers will work alongside longtime Fair partners to safely box and distribute free meals to local VA healthcare and essential workers, City of St. Louis essential workers, the St. Louis Fire Department and the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department over the coming weeks.
- Wednesday, May 27: Healthcare and essential workers at John Cochran Veterans Hospital and the St. Louis VA Medical Center – Jefferson Barracks
- Friday, June 12: City of St. Louis essential workers
- Saturday, June 20: St. Louis Fire Department
- Saturday, June 27: St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department
PPE DONATION EVENT
To provide those in need with protective face coverings, the Fair St. Louis Foundation worked with the City of St. Louis to identify those in need of these resources.
In early June, the Fair St. Louis Foundation will donate 20,000 3-ply face masks to the St. Louis Metropolitan Clergy Coalition to benefit churches in underserved communities in North St. Louis, South St. Louis and downtown. The coalition will distribute the face coverings to clergy, staff, and members of the congregation.
FAIR SAINT LOUIS @HOME
Just because our annual Fair Saint Louis event isn’t happening at Gateway Arch National Park this year, doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate our community and our nation’s independence! We’re bringing Fair Saint Louis to you – virtually – with Fair Saint Louis @Home on Saturday, July 4.
Starting at 10 a.m., viewers can tune in to Fair Saint Louis’ Facebook page (facebook.com/fairsaintlouis) or fairsaintlouis.org for a virtual Fourth of July celebration featuring entertainment by local musicians, performances by Fair Saint Louis’ favorite variety acts, a salute to our servicemembers and essential workers, and much more!
Full Fair Saint Louis @Home programming details, including the featured local entertainment, will be announced in mid-June. Please visit fairsaintlouis.org and the Fair’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages (@fairsaintlouis) for other announcements leading up to the event.
