ST. LOUIS - Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 36 demonstrated its dedication to the community by recently donating time and money to the St. Vincent Home for Children and the Stray Rescue of St. Louis.

On May 3, Local 36 held its annual golf outing to benefit the St. Vincent Home for Children and raised $20,000 for the home. Over the past 13 years, Local 36 and its partners have raised and donated more than $175,000 for the organization.

“Words can’t explain how grateful we are to Local 36, its employees, and all those who were able to contribute to this generous gift in such unstable economic times,” said Lee Ann Taylor, executive director the children’s home. “Local 36 plays a significant role in helping us continue our mission of changing the lives of abused and neglected children in our community.”

As a residential treatment center founded in 1850, St. Vincent Home provides care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for abused and neglected children with moderate to severe emotional problems, behavior disorders, and/or learning disabilities. The home serves children ages 6-18 and provides loving care, housing, nutritious meals, clothing, and therapy, and is licensed to care for up to 36 children at a time.

Additionally, on May 14, representatives from Local 36 presented a check for more than $13,000 to Stray Rescue of St. Louis. The donation represents roughly half the costs of the HVAC work done by Local 36 contractors on the first phase of Stray Rescue’s new facility in downtown St. Louis, scheduled to open later in 2010.

As a no-kill organization, Stray Rescue’s sole purpose is to rescue stray animals in need of medical attention, restore them to health, and place them in loving adoptive homes.
