Come join us this month for our July Giveback Tuesday, which is set for July 25. This month, our Giveback Tuesday event will benefit All Among Us.
Every month, we are proud to feature a local nonprofit charity and donate 100% of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the charity. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included.
This month’s Giveback Tuesday will also mark our third anniversary of starting up the monthly event, and we have donated more than $100,000 to local nonprofit organizations so far!
Funds raised from this Giveback Tuesday event will go directly toward helping the All Among Us build funds to renovate their building at 107 Carson Road in Ferguson, which is being used as a women’s care center.
“Our desire is to make a safe place for women and children to heal and move forward,” said Kristin Hayes of All Among Us. “This facility will be a warm and welcoming home for women and children, many of whom come from abusive relationships, are chronically homeless, or are struggling with mental illness. We also walk alongside our clients as we enroll their children in school and assist the clients with obtaining their GEDs and health insurance, teaching them about finances, finding them jobs where they can succeed, helping them find permanent homes, and more.”
All Among Us, Inc., is a young non-profit organization. Cathryn Shaw, the Executive Director of All Among Us, founded the organization in July 2016 to better serve those in need after working in the city for 11 years with chronically homeless and single mothers who were living in extreme poverty. The organization is currently focusing on opening a 24/7 women’s care center in Ferguson.
“We want to fill the gap created by the closure of three major shelters in the city by opening this care center for women and children in Ferguson,” said Hayes. “Last year, we had an impact in over 600 lives. Many of these people have not received love, care, or dignity in years. It’s very gratifying to see how quickly someone heals once they feel safe, have people care for them, and receive something as simple as new clothes, a healthy meal, and a daily shower.”
Zion Lutheran Church of Ferguson is providing the proposed building rent-free for 10 years. The building, which was constructed in 1927 and has sat vacant for nine years, is in need of ADA-compliant renovations, including the installation of showers, a renovated kitchen, new drywall, paint, flooring, and more.
“We are grateful to Zion Lutheran Church of Ferguson and appreciate Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria for believing in us and helping us as we get our feet on the ground financially,” Hayes said.
Please join us in donating to All Among Us. The more you order, the more money we can raise! Remember: 100% of the profits from every purchase, dine-in and carryout, from open to close will be donated!
