St. Louis Christmas Carols Association Seeks Volunteers for Holiday Season
St. Louis Christmas Carols Association calls for volunteers to go caroling for the benefit of St. Louis children.
By: St. Louis Christmas Carols Association
Since 1911, St. Louis Christmas Carols Association (SLCCA) has spread cheer and good will throughout our St. Louis community by caroling in neighborhoods around the metro region. This season, volunteer caroling groups will collect donations for 24 St. Louis children's charities as they bring community spirit to our neighborhood front doors and public spaces through the gift of song. Charity partners include Sherwood Forest, SouthSide Early Childhood Center, Unleashed Potential, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri, Girls on the Run, Center for Hearing and Speech, and others.
"After several seasons which required adapting to meet public health needs, we are all craving joy and community. Caroling is good for your body and builds relationships with friends and neighbors! For the past 111 years, all proceeds from donations collected by our volunteer carolers have been directed toward non-profit agencies serving young people in our region. It's a win for all involved!" said StLCCA Executive Director, Elizabeth Hogan. "We're so excited for the 2022 caroling season and we invite everyone to gather a group of friends, family or neighbors and come caroling with us. Come together to celebrate community with each other, and bring joy to those who may not be able to get out over this festive season. No experience is necessary – the only qualification needed is a desire to spread cheer to those with whom we share our neighborhoods and support kids in St. Louis."
Despite only doing outdoor and masked caroling in 2021, 111 StLCCA volunteer caroling groups raised $27,000 for through caroling efforts, and this year we hope to make an impact on the lives of our community's children by doubling those numbers during this holiday season.
"We are looking for individuals who would like to join our efforts, and we encourage groups to sign up to sing together! " said Hogan. "It's a fun, family-friendly activity that builds community and brings cheer and merriment, which we think is one of the best ways to celebrate the season."
