Each year during the holiday season, CNB St. Louis Bank employees proudly work together to support an area charity. This year, we hosted a Holiday Giving Tree to benefit Saint Louis Crisis Nursery . St. Louis Crisis Nursery is committed to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. They provide interventions, short term care, support, and safe havens to families and children who face emergencies caused by illness, homelessness, domestic violence, and/or overwhelming prenatal stress.
Starting the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, known as Giving Tuesday, employees got together to collect the most needed items from the nursery's wish list. Every employee who participated received a keepsake ornament commemorating their support of the nursery. We invited our customers to help by making each of our six branch locations collection points for anyone who wanted to donate for the drive.
The drive culminated on Friday, December 17th, National Ugly Sweater Day, with a friendly ugly sweater contest between participants with prizes for the winners. It was a special day filled with generosity, kindness, and comradery.
Together, our community and employees were so grateful and proud to collect over 250+ donation items for Crisis Nursery, which include but are not limited to:
- $200 Cash and Gift Cards (Target, Walmart, Schnucks, Dollar Tree)
- 53 Baby Lotions/Baby Wash
- 51 Tubes of Toothpaste
- 49 Toothbrushes
- 32 Hot Wheels/Toy Cars
- 31 Bars of Soap
- 10 Baby Dolls

- 4 Body Spray/Deodorant
