BENEFITING: THE LITTLE BIT FOUNDATION
Founded in 2001, The Little Bit Foundation works to eliminate barriers to learning by providing for the basic needs of disadvantaged children in the St. Louis area. The organization currently serves 6,000 students in 20 partner schools in St. Louis city and North County. Little Bit is committed to maintaining a weekly presence in school communities, working one-on-one with every child and serving as the backbone of distribution for programs and services that address the needs of the whole child, be it physical, mental or emotional. The results are positive personal growth and increased self-esteem, in students impacted by poverty, leading to improved attendance, behavior and academic success.
