This Week at FOCUS

Thank you to all our members, alumni and supporters who participated in our first week of virtual programming!

Alumni Highlight

Kicking off last week, families in need can drive up to receive free emergency diapers, as well as period supply kits, each Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to four branches of the St. Louis County Library, thanks to a partnership with the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank. Learn more.

Kudos to SLCL Director Kristen Sorth (LSL 2014/Coro WIL 2013) and St. Louis Area Diaper Bank Executive Director Jessica Adams (LSL 2019) on leading the way with this initiative!

Each week, we’ll also be sharing virtual opportunities for our FOCUS community members to continue their professional development and civic engagement. Share your opportunity here!
