This month we will be donating 100% of our profits from the day to Marygrove, a nonprofit that provides a safe home, compassionate care, and high-quality mental health services to children who have experienced significant trauma.
Katies Pizza’s Giveback Initiative
We’re proud to feature a local nonprofit charity each month and donate 100% of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the organization. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included. So far, Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria has donated $331,665 to nonprofit organizations here in St. Louis!
Funds donated to Marygrove will support serving approximately 200 children and youth, ages birth to 21, per day through Marygrove’s continuum of residential and community-based programs.
By providing treatment and support to children and youth struggling with debilitating emotional and behavioral issues resulting from abuse, neglect, trauma, and abandonment, Marygrove helps ensure their successful transition back into the care of a family member, another permanent home, or independent living.
Founded in 1849 as the House of Good Shepard, a St. Louis Home for girls, Marygrove has a rich history and is now one of Missouri's most extensive therapeutic residential treatment programs.
Every year, Marygrove enriches the lives of nearly 700 children through services including:
The children and young adults at Marygrove live and grow in a safe, nurturing environment and can heal in a stable, family-like setting.
Professional caregivers provide compassion, encouragement, and structure. In contrast, therapists provide individualized treatment plans and counseling to help each child overcome personal obstacles and establish responsible, attainable goals for the short and long-term future.
Without Marygrove, most of these children would have few alternatives for housing and face life on the street, in prison, or an institution. That is why Marygrove is so important.
