Every July the Ville Collaborative hosts a block party on the parking lot owned by St. Matthew’s Catholic Church. It is a wonderful neighborhood event, with food and giveaways.
Social Justice 4 All participates in this event with a table supplied with socks, and snacks. In addition to the giveaways we also have a craft table for the children, which is always a hit.
This event is a perfect way to meet the folks in the neighborhood and help increase their sense of community.
Note: Due to Covid-19 in 2020, the event was not the same as described above. Social distancing was the main concern. St. Louis Area Foodbank donated fresh produce and non-perishables. Backpack and school supplies were also provided.
