The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Welcome to the Saint Louis Adventist Community Services (ACS). We are proud to be associated with the work of the Lord by being His hands in meeting the day to day needs of our everyday brothers and sisters in and around our community.
Saint Louis Adventist Community Services (ACS) has been serving and meeting the needs of the people of St Louis community for approximately 35 years.
The service started out as a clothes distribution center and served the needy in an uncanny way. As a direct result of the flood in 1993 the Center was reorganized and our programs expanded to better serve the community. We now house a Food Pantry and a Thrift Store.
Saint Louis ACS is part of a worldwide network of community services of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

I first volunteered at the St. Louis Adventist Center in July 2008, I havent stopped since. I am almost like staff now. Actually, I do consider myself one.
The other volunteers, though few at times, are kind, friendly and takes care of me like a loving relative. I even get home cooked meals, cookies, brownies, juices and a healthy hug from the older and more matured ladies who volunteers there. Some of them tell me they have been coming to the center since 'the Devil was a boy.'lol. I may beat their record some day. It's a pleasant environment.
