Project 5 Community Spotlight: Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis

Show Me St. Louis checked in with KSDK’s Community Correspondent Chris Randall to learn more about this nonprofit.

ST. LOUIS — There is so much good in the St. Louis area, and a lot of it is created by the incredible nonprofits here.

Show Me St. Louis checked in with KSDK’s Community Correspondent Chris Randall to learn more about a nonprofit giant here that is joining forces with another big local brand to raise money for kids this weekend.

The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis is on a mission to empower African Americans and others in the area to secure economic self-reliance, social equality, and civil rights.

The organization provides ladders out of poverty through partnerships, community leaders, and institutions. It offers several programs and opportunities for those in need.

The Urban League’s Head Start Program provides services to low income children and families.

For more information on the Head Start and Early Head Start Program, visit ulstl.com.

The organization is partnering with 39 Castles Sneakers & Style this weekend for A Cause to Snack On. 39 Castles and Old Vienna (the Red Hot Riplets' brand) have created a Red Hot Riplets t-shirt, and sales will benefit the Head Start Program. 39 Castles is located at 1115 Pine Street in St. Louis.
