Katie’s Pizza Donates to L’Arche St. Louis

Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria invites diners to participate in our second August Giveback Tuesday event at the Town & Country location on August 22, 2023. The profits from patrons’ dine-in and curbside pickup orders will be donated to L’Arche St. Louis.

A United States branch of the International Federation of L’Arche, the nonprofit’s mission is to make known the unique gifts of all people with and without intellectual disabilities, working together toward a more human society.

Katie's Pizza’s Giveback Initiative

Twice a month, we feature a local nonprofit charity to donate 100% of the earned proceeds from our Giveback Tuesday events. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included. So far, Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria has donated $371,621 to nonprofit organizations here in St. Louis!

L’Arche St. Louis’s Plans for the Donation

Envisioning a world where everyone belongs, the L’Arche St. Louis is dedicated to maintaining an accepting, adaptable, and diverse community that fosters mutually transformative relationships and bridges the gap of perceived differences, helping people form genuine human connections.

“The funds from Katie’s Pizza will support this life-changing growth along with our existing programs that are all centered around helping our members with disabilities to live full and healthy lives,” said the L’Arche St. Louis Director of Development, Emma Pieper. 

“Our dream is to expand our services and welcome more adults with intellectual disabilities into our inclusive programming.”

“As we grow, we will also hire more caregivers who will have the opportunity to learn a unique care model and develop vital skills for future careers in various fields.

About L’Arche St. Louis

Since 2011, L’Arche St. Louis has provided an environment where Core Members and Assistants share day-to-day activities, including:

  • Meals,
  • Chores,
  • Leisure,
  • Outings, and
  • Celebrations

A licensed care provider by the State of Missouri, L’Arche St. Louis offers a community where those with disabilities (Core Members) have a place to call home while receiving daily care from live-in caregivers (Assistants) and support from the nonprofit’s daytime programming as well as its Family Support and Education and Community Outreach programs.

L’Arche St. Louis in 2023 and Its Plans for the Future

Today, the nonprofit’s community is home to 11 adults with disabilities and several Assistants who share life with them, expanding across three houses and three adults through its Family Support program.

Most recently, L’Arche St. Louis is preparing to launch a capital campaign to raise funds to build a fourth home that is fully accessible for its aging Core Members to age in place with the necessary care and support, allowing the nonprofit to welcome additional people into its community and to expand care services and programming.
