Anders partners and staff have selected the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery as the firm’s 2019 Charity of Choice. Now in its 14th year, the Charity of Choice program combines fundraising activities and volunteer efforts to support one local charity each year. Charities are submitted by members of the firm, and all members of the firm, from interns to partners, have the opportunity to vote for their choice at the firm’s meeting each January. In 2018, Anders raised more than $31,000 for Angels’ Arms.
An Anders audit staff member works closely with the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery and nominated the organization for Anders 2019 Charity of Choice. The Saint Louis Crisis Nursery is committed to preventing child abuse and neglect. The not-for-profit organization provides a short-term, safe haven for about 6,500 children a year, birth through age 12, whose families face an emergency caused by illness, homelessness, domestic violence, or overwhelming parental stress.
While activities such as Pick Me Up Carts, Busy Season Bingo and volunteer activities are held throughout the year, the first major Anders fundraising event will be the annual “Hoops for Hope” NCAA basketball pool, which draws participation from clients, colleagues, referral sources and friends of the firm from all over the country.
In addition to the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery, other beneficiaries of the Anders Charity of Choice program have included Angels’ Arms, Shriners Hospitals for Children – St. Louis, Stray Rescue of St. Louis, Friends of Kids with Cancer, Basket of Hope, Young Friends of Habitat for Humanity, Nurses for Newborns, Girls on the Run, St. Louis Crisis Nursery, Lafayette Industries, KidSmart, Re-Building Together and Kids Under Twenty-One (KUTO). Anders has raised over $305,000 in the past 14 years.
