Make Plans to Help Brace for Impact 46 This June 13!

There’s a lot to be excited about this month. We opened our Ballpark Village location with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 22, our third and biggest location with nearly 10,000 sq. ft. It’s located on Clark Ave, across the street from Gate 4 at Busch Stadium. We’re also now donating twice a month to a local nonprofit. Nonprofits that join the Giveback Tuesday program through the Ballpark Village location will be unique, with a focus on giving back to the city of St. Louis and youth sports programs.

So, be sure to join us at our Ballpark Village location on June 13 for our next Giveback Tuesday event! Brace for Impact 46 is a nonprofit organization that impacts children and their families in Haiti and North St. Louis by funding programs that build schools and hospitals, provide healthy meals, and create local jobs.

Twice a month, we’re proud to feature a local nonprofit charity 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 $359,185.00 to nonprofit organizations here in St. Louis.

Funds raised from Giveback Tuesday will be used to support Brace for Impact 46’s programs.

In partnership with Tabernacle Community Development Corporation, they purchase and renovate homes in North St. Louis and employ local contractors to conduct the work. This has kept 103 workers in steady jobs for five years.

These homes are provided to children and their families who are in need of stable and affordable housing. The families receive affordable rental rates and acquire life and social skills through community engagement, volunteerism for 2 to 4 hours a month, and quarterly interactive seminars/classes focused on their particular areas of needed development.

In Haiti, Brace for Impact 46 helps fund the school IDADEE, which educates over 400 students and employs 44 staff members. The nonprofit also built IDADEE Children’s Home and implemented the Breaking Bread program.

  • IDADEE Children’s Home provides shelter, clothing, food, education, and medical care to 41 children.
  • The Breaking Bread program, employing 5 local women, feeds schoolchildren breakfast and lunch and gives them take-home meals for the weekend.

Additionally, Brace for Impact 46 supports CHIDA, a medical center that cares for thousands of people in the community.

Former MLB pitcher Kyle McClellan and his wife Bridget founded the nonprofit organization in 2015. You may be wondering why the number 46 was chosen. This number comes from Kyle’s number from when he played for the St. Louis Cardinals!

Be sure to mark June 13 on your calendars. The upcoming Giveback Tuesday event will be held at our Ballpark Village location, and you won’t want to miss it! 100% of earned profits will benefit Brace for Impact 46 and its meaningful cause. Please visit www.katiespizzaandpasta.com to order curbside pickup or make a reservation, and give us a call at (314) 942-6555 with any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
