Annie Malone Children and Family Services is making an emergency appeal to the public for support as we provide care for clients and vulnerable members of the community who will be impacted disproportionately by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our agency, like many nonprofits and smaller businesses, operates with little wiggle room financially,” said Cozy Marks, Chairman of the agency’s Board of Directors. “This Coronavirus pandemic will significantly impact our ability to provide the services that our families trust us to deliver. We are doing everything we can to be prudent and responsible but we need the public's help in order to continue helping those most at risk.”
Annie Malone has set up donation stations for the public to drop of cleaning supplies and basic household items including towels and bed linens to be used in their residential facilities housing an average of 25 children on any given day. The agency is also seeking financial donations to help support program delivery and offset increased costs during the pandemic.
“Our cleaning and sanitation costs have escalated. Our food costs will rise tremendously because of the quarantine,” said CEO Sara Lahman. “We have to be able to deliver services as a social service agency. We are often the last hope for people and we need the public’s help to continue programs.”
Donations of cleaning supplies and household items can be brought to Annie Malone at 2612 Annie Malone Drive, 63113. Financial donations can be made online. Click here. Donations can also be mailed to 2612 Annie Malone Drive, 63113. In addition, Amazon shoppers can purchase items from our Wish List online and have the items shipped directly to Annie Malone.
