We maintain a garden in Quinette Cemetery to respect those who have come before us. We have been maintaning the garden since 2007.
We have sponsored 14 wishes for Make-A-Wish. By sponsoring participating children, we give them the opportunity to take a trip of a lifetime.
35 families were able to participate in Shop-With-A-Cop during December 2019. Quality time was spent with officers shopping and their wives who helped wrap gifts. Youth In Action raises funds for this event annually because we believe it's important to build and maintain good relationships within the community.
Many of our members attend Ursuline Academy, and this year Youth In Action honored them with the "Top Of The Class" Award. Ursuline students participating in Youth In Action had the most service hours out of 13 middle and high schools in the surrounding area. The award was also presented on the basis of events attended and attitude towards serving.
Members of our group worked to raise money for Operation Backpack (an extension of Operation Food Search) as well as Lunch In A Bag. A total of 500 backpacks and 1500 lunch bags were created and donated to fight against hunger in the Saint Louis Area.
