Urban League Serves 1,000 Families for the Holidays

In the month of December, the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis hosted Senior Empowerment Forums at Homer G. Phillips, Heritage House and Metropolitan Village Apartments, three local senior citizens centers.  The forums featured presentations on senior services, transportation, health and wellness. Lunch, gifts and clothing giveaways were also provided to the residents.

The Urban League Senior Empowerment Series Forums are held each year at local senior citizens centers.  Target Corporation, Aetna, Charles Lowenhaupt, Don Brown, Dierbergs, Panera Bread, Jim Shaughnessy, Laborers Local #110, Saint Louis University, St. Louis Auto Dealers Association, Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel, St. Louis Area Agency on Aging, Metro and At Home Care are the sponsors for this year’s forums.

In addition to the forums, the Urban League adopted hundreds of the 100 Neediest Cases families and youth in partnership with the United Way of Greater St. Louis and Citi. Their assistance provided food, clothing, toys, toiletries and medication to those who were most in need in the St. Louis community.

“We are excited to partner with our sponsors to provide valuable information and holiday cheer to our local senior citizens and needy residents,” said Michael P. McMillan, President and CEO of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Inc.
