Through community engagement, we can unite to make a difference in the St. Louis Region. This year, we’re proud to offer volunteer opportunities to give back to the community by partnering The United Way of Greater St. Louis.
Thrive Pop-Up: Smile Kits at WashU
Thank you to those employees who joined us at our October Thrive Pop-Up events to assemble “Smile Kits”. Together, we built 400 dental hygiene bags that were delivered to children in need in the St. Louis region through LifeWise StL. Each bag contained a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and a brushing timer as well as a coloring book and note of encouragement our employees wrote.
Stories of Community Engagement
“I love being a member of such a generous community as St. Louis. It’s a collective win when those in our community in the most need can find the support to thrive. We each can do a little bit to raise up our region.” – Josh Walehwa, PhD
As part of our Caring for the Community initiative, we continue to build and strengthen community partnerships with non-profit organizations in St. Louis. Read stories of how members of the WashU community embrace and encourage civic engagement with their family, friends and colleagues.
