SERVPRO of Western O'Fallon/Wentzville helping LBB and Toys For Tots
SERVPRO of Western O'Fallon/Wentzville is involved with an amazing group called Little Black Book. This group is an organization of woman empowering other woman in business. 7 years ago this group started a yearly event called the Brrr Bash that is a collection for Toys For Tots. They kicked of this collection the end of October. Brett Gittemeier, our marketing rep, delivered boxes all over for about a week. On December 12th the SERVPRO of Western O'Fallon/Wentzville gang set out to collect those boxes. There was a huge party on the 14th at the Foundry Art Center in St. Charles where there was 50/50, silent auction, dinner, drinks music. It was absolutely amazing and at that event we formed a toy train and put all of the toys into a semi truck. We filled the whole thing up. The money that was raised was then donated to a group called We Love St. Charles. This is a non-profit organization that mentors families, individuals and at risk teen through family support and intervention, homeless prevention and job training.
The St. Louis Toys For Tots drive is the 3rd largest in the nation only behind NYC and LA. The Brrr Bash represents 20% of that. Not to mention that this event was also able to donate in the ballpark of $10,000 to We Love St. Charles. To say that we are proud to have been a part of that is an understatement.
