Serve hard, play hard! Over the weekend, our team took part in a float trip down the Meramec River! #teambonding #floaton 🛶☀️👒
Throw back to April’s group service project with @stlredcross! ACSTL participated in their annual “Sound the Alarm” campaign, where we traveled to at-risk homes across the St. Louis metro region and installed almost 100 smoke detectors! #endhomefires #soundthealarm
Today is #GiveSTLDay! A day of supporting your favorite local St. Louis nonprofits, including AmeriCorps St. Louis! Today we are raising $2,500 to celebrate the 25 years ACSTL has been serving our communities through disaster response, conservation, wildland firefighting, our winter warming shelter, and the countless other ways we engage with the community. We couldn’t do it without your support.
