Support Community Work in North St. Louis City this #GivingTuesday

Today is #GivingTuesday!

As the end of 2021 approaches, North Newstead Association (NNA) staff have been reflecting on how much we have accomplished this year. As you may know, the pandemic has presented a unique set of challenges especially when it comes to community engagement and community work. Although we cannot share with you in-person our accomplishments this year as part of our usual annual Community Development Celebration, check out our 2021 Annual Report below. We hope you would consider donating to NNA and our work on this #GivingTuesday. 

Thank you to all our community partners, funders, sponsors, and volunteers past and present who have made it possible for us to do this work everyday! 

Cheers to 28 years of serving the North St. Louis communities.
