Supporting Our Afghan Refugee Family

The Afghan family that CRC is sponsoring is arriving this weekend and our team of core volunteers has secured housing, so we need your help to make their house a home! Thanks to our community for the enthusiastic support of this sponsorship! Our core volunteers are working hard to navigate each step of this process in the best interest of our sponsored family. We'll keep you updated on the progress and needs of this process. See below for current ways to help.

Drive for the Bullet-Related Injury Clinic

CRC members already have been generous in donating needed supplies to help the clients of the St. Louis based Bullet Related Injury Clinic (The BRIC). We are continuing this drive as every donation helps the BRIC provide support to those it serves and frees up funds for other uses.

  • Supportive Devices/Mobility Aids: Compression Sleeves, Slings, Walkers, Canes, Adult Crutches
  • Pre-Fabricated Splints: walking boots, post-op shoes, alumafoam finger splints
  • Supplements/Miscellaneous: B-vitamins, magnesium, and omega-3 supplements; biofreeze, lidocaine patches, melatonin, reusable ice packs, santyl ointment

Drop-off Options:

  • To drop off in Clayton, contact Virginia Weil.
  • To drop-off in South City, contact Philip Deitch. If emailing, put "CRC BRIC SUPPLY DRIVE" in your subject line.
