Donation Drive!

For the months of October and November, we will be hosting a donation drive for The Little Bit Foundation.

 Who We Are

The Little Bit Foundation is an army of supporters giving, serving and advocating for impoverished children in St. Louis. Our philosophy: when you remove the barriers to learning, you give a child hope for the future and empower them to reach their dreams. Through partnerships with area schools, where we serve as the convener of programs that provide for students' essential needs, we are committed to having a positive impact on each student’s personal growth and self-esteem. We have impacted more than 38,000 students in St. Louis city and North County with this mission since our journey began in 2001.

 Going where the need is the greatest; working one-on-one with each child; delivering programs that help students stand taller, smile brighter and achieve their goals…this is what Little Bit is about. Yes, the need is great, but the passion of our staff, volunteers and friends is greater.
