ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), July 29, 2018 - The Sarah Community and AMVETS have collaborated to create AMVETS Post 122, the first AMVETS Post in the nation originated inside a retirement community.

An Opening Ceremony will be held, Tuesday, July 31, at 2 p.m. at the Sarah Community, located at 12284 De Paul Drive, Bridgeton, MO.

The new Post will enhance the quality of life for 20 veterans currently residing within the Life Plan Community (formerly known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)), and for other veterans from the surrounding area who are also welcome to become involved.

It will honor the vitality and service of veterans with a mission "To Protect and Serve Seniors," bringing veterans together to help identify and address the needs of their fellow veterans. A proclamation will be presented during the opening ceremony recognizing AMVETS Post 122 as a viable, new, innovative program and proclaiming July 31st as AMVETS Post 122 Day.

With more than 250,000 current members nationwide, AMVETS provides the best model for veterans serving fellow veterans. AMVETS Post 122 will meet the last Friday of the month and is open not only to the veterans residing at The Sarah Community but members of the community at large.

Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch Helps to Feed More Than 600 Families in St. Louis-Area
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), July 25, 2018 - Recently, the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch Sales & Events team and clients volunteered at Operation Food Search, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in the greater St. Louis area and distributes food to those in need.

On June 13, the volunteers helped pack more than 600 family meals, which are given to families in the St. Louis area. Each Friday this summer, 100 meals are distributed in the area in an effort to decrease those who have no option but to go hungry.

"At Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch, it is our honor to help those in our local community and we are thrilled that we had the opportunity to aid in feeding more than 600 families this summer in our area," said Randy Thompson, general manager of Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch. "We feel it is our duty to serve our community not only during Hyatt's Global Month of Giving, but throughout the year, and encourage our employees to be philanthropists within our city."

Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch is committed to serving its local community with giving back projects throughout the year. Recently, the hotel's team members took part in several community service activities as part of Hyatt Corporate's Global Month of Giving in April.

On April 11, hotel employees helped walk dogs at Stray Rescue of St. Louis, an animal shelter that rescues strays in need of medical attention and nurses them back to health so they are able to be adopted into loving homes. Hotel employees also volunteered at Kingdom House, one of the hotel's community partners which helps economically disadvantaged residents achieve economic independence and a path out of poverty, on April 16 to aid in beautifying the nonprofit organization's grounds. The volunteers helped spread more than 100 bags of mulch and planted spring flowers with the help of their partner, Ambius, a local plant service.

Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch employees also participated in the Walk of Hope St. Louis on April 22 to help raise funds and awareness for individuals struggling with infertility. The hotel's team raised $575 at the walk to support the cause. Additionally, on May 19, a team of Hyatt employees joined Jacque Woods, sales manager at the hotel, to take part in the Lupus Walk, which aims to cure the disease that causes the immune system to attack its own tissues and organs. In support of the cause and of Jacque, who has been battling Lupus for 16 years, the team raised $815 during the walk.

Hyatt's Global Month of Giving is in its eighth year in which Hyatt employees and World of Hyatt members come together during the month of April to participate in serving their local communities with various volunteer events for local-area organizations and fundraisers.

HealthWorks! Receives $10,000 for Nutritional Programming
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), June 24, 2018 - HealthWorks! Kids' Museum St. Louis has announced that the Monsanto Fund has awarded $10,000 in grant funding to the organization to help further its nutritional programming.

The grant will allow Healthworks! to license and update the Be A Food Groupie, Food Group Frenzy and Move It programs; train health educators, and provide free admission to approximately 500 children and caregivers set to attend the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition's Back-to-School event at the museum in August.

The educational programs at Healthworks! Kids' Museum St. Louis take an in-depth look at an array of different topics designed to improve the oral and overall healthy habits of children and families. Nutritional programming covers the five food groups, discusses how each type of food impacts the body, explains the digestive process and encourages individuals to exercise, develop a palate for good nutrition and make positive choices to achieve optimum health. The Back-to-School event will focus on nutrition and demonstrate how to get one's body and mind ready to rock the school year.

"Engaging, motivating and encouraging children to consider health issues at a young age helps them to discover a sense of empowerment regarding their own health," said Shannon Woodcock, president and chief executive officer of HealthWorks! Kids' Museum St. Louis. "We are so very thankful for the funding received by the Monsanto Fund and look forward to partnering with them as we fulfill our mission of infectiously contaminating children of all ages to learn, have fun and make great life choices."

HealthWorks! Kids' Museum St. Louis is located at 1100 Macklind Ave., St. Louis, MO, 63110. General admission to the museum is $7 for ages three and up. Members and those under two are free. To learn more, call 314-241-7391, visit www.hwstl.org.
