Proud partners of Citypak Project

We will be stuffing 504 backpacks with essentials for our unhoused neighbors. Each backpack will contain items that will make life on the streets a little easier this winter. On top of that, each backpack will have a scarf, handmade with love, to show that someone really cares. *Children 10 years old and up are welcome with an adult.

Once you register to volunteer you will be sent an email telling you about parking and sending you a waiver.
PLEASE PRINT AND SIGN THE WAIVER BEFORE ARRIVING TO VOLUNTEER. *ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST HAVE A WAIVER SIGNED BY A PARENT OR THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOLUNTEER. NO EXCEPTIONS.

About BACK@YOU

Location:

5010 Murdoch Ave, St. Louis, MO 63109, US

Mission Statement

BACK@YOU was created to help open people’s eyes to those that so many of us walk blindly by each day. The homeless are not invisible, and we should not act as if they don’t exist. We all deserve to be treated with dignity and kindness. None of us is less of a person for not having a home. With those principles as our guide, we simply fill backpacks with some essential supplies and basic comforts to share with our homeless neighbors, and our volunteers distribute these backpacks. We make each of our backpacks to show its recipient that someone cares. They may be small gestures in the grand scheme of things, but they are filled with love.
