Katie’s Pizza Donates to Saint Louis Crisis Nursery

Everyone is welcome at Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria for the restaurant’s Giveback Tuesday event at its Town & Country location on December 19, 2023. The entirety of the proceeds from the day will go to the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery (SLCN), a St. Louis-region nonprofit committed to the prevention of child abuse and neglect and providing trauma-informed emergency intervention, 24-hour respite care, and support to families in crisis.

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 $405,630 to nonprofit organizations here in St. Louis!

Saint Louis Crisis Nursery’s Plans for the Donation

“The Saint Louis Crisis Nursery is the region’s premier child abuse and neglect agency, and we are so grateful to Katie’s Pizza and Pasta for supporting our important work!” said the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery Senior Communications Director, Jane Beckman.

The nonprofit will use funds to bolster its Crisis Care program, providing short-term crisis services, typically one to three days, for children ages birth to 12. The donation will help maintain the organization’s safe and therapeutic environments with:

  • Warm Baths and Beds,
  • Three Daily Meals and Snacks,
  • Art and Play Therapy,
  • Medical Exams, and
  • More.

Additional SLCN programs include:

About Saint Louis Crisis Nursery

Make a Positive Impact by Eating Positively Delicious Food

It takes a village! At Katie’s Pizza & Osteria, we know that one of the best ways to uplift a community is for its members to support each other one good deed at a time. Often, in life, it is the little daily things that help make a massive difference down the line. Those little things can include mowing a neighbor’s lawn, completing household tasks for the elderly couple across the street, or grabbing a bite to eat at your local, award-winning Italian eatery!
