From the Director
Pakt has been serving the children and families of North St. Louis County for close to 50 years and, while the need for resources and services has only increased, due much in part to the current economic climate, funding to help the needy has continued to shrink since 2009. Pakt has survived in spite of the decline in funding, because of the sacrifices of staff, volunteers, individual givers and sustaining donors who answer the call to serve North St. Louis County’s neediest children and families.
The children of North St. Louis County are not only the future of this community, they are also the community of today, and in Pakt’s eyes, there is no better investment. We appreciate all volunteerism and monetary support toward this goal.
With community collaboration, support and prayers, I am confident Pakt will continue for another 50 years in providing enrichment, quality academic programming and cultural awareness to our families and children in need.
