Third Party Events

Family Resource Center has a big goal – to break the cycle of chronic child abuse in the St. Louis area – and to document that path in measurable ways that can be replicated in other communities around the country.

We have some big supporters already: corporations large and small; individual donors; collaborative partnerships with universities, colleague agencies, and other institutions; and volunteers who give generously of their time and talent.Achieving this large and meaningful goal takes support, and lots of it, from a wide range of individuals, families, and organizations who are compassionate and dedicated to providing the best possible future for our kids. There are many ways you can help FRC ensure a safe and hopeful future thousands of children and families.

One of the ways you can help is by hosting a fundraising event. They can be as simple as a clothing drive, or as complex as a trivia night. The opportunities are unlimited! We’ve had many supporters host events over the past year, so we’ve compiled a list that you might find useful.
