Fuel Our Mission with a Donation Drive

Hosting an in-kind donation drive is a powerful and immediate way to support LifeWise StL, especially during moments when resources are stretched thin. Every drive brings us closer to meeting the pressing needs of our participants. Your commitment can make a world of difference.

If you’re considering this impactful initiative, please contact Jennifer Weston, Director of Communications & Administrative Support, at or 314-627-1225.

In-kind donations can be deducted from your taxes at fair market value. For guidelines on determining fair market value, please read Publication 561 (Rev.
