Community Involvement

Suburban homes

At Mercedes-Benz of St. Louis, we’re committed to more than just selling new vehicles. We know the importance of connecting with the communities around us, from Clayton to Collinsville. Because of that, we always extend our helping hands where we can and aid the organizations and groups that keep our communities strong. We’d like to take a moment to shine a light on some of many organizations that we work with, and show you how much of a difference they make.

Friends of Kids with Cancer

Dedicated to providing families and their children going through these extremely difficult times, Friends of Kids with Cancer aims to provide the support and help they need. Between educational, emotional, and recreational programs, this organization is designed to be a safe haven that takes the mind off what’s going on and provide resources and activities to help these kids and families feel connected and happy. Founded in 1992, the program has the mission to make each child and family keep hold of what’s important, and to help give these kids the chance to keep being kids. We are endlessly proud of our opportunity to work with this incredible organization.

Operation Food Search

Founded back in 1981, this non-profit has not stopped working tirelessly on their mission of ending hunger in the greater St. Louis area. By working hand-in-hand with more than 300 community partners, they are able to feed 200,000 people in need of food each month. This group also spearheads nutrition educational services to help families better understand how to find, prepare, and regulate healthy meals at home. During the winter months, Operation Food Search also works to distribute winter clothing to those in need. We are lucky and honored to lend our hand to this fantastic organization, so please give them some time and learn more about their mission.

The BackStoppers

This incredible organization provides much needed financial help and support to families of police officers, firefighters, publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs, and volunteer firefighters who lose their lives or suffer catastrophic, life-changing injuries in the line of duty. The response of The BackStoppers is immediate, and the continued support of the organization is promised to those who suffer these terrible loses. The assistance this organization provides to families includes eliminating the family debt, health and dental insurance coverage, financial counseling, tuition and education cost assistance, and more. This organization provides vital support to the families of those who protect our streets and keep us safe, and we are thankful to help support them.

Salvation Army

This group needs no introduction. The Salvation Army is dedicated to providing support for those in need, no matter what it is they need. From providing housing to food support to youth programs, this organization continues to help millions of people in need, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. The Salvation Army also helps veterans and seniors, emergency disaster response teams, and those struggling with addiction issues. There is no community or social issue too big or too small for the Salvation Army to take part in helping solve. They’ve been steadfast in their mission for decades, and they don’t plan on slowing down, just as we don’t plan on ending our work with them.

Lift for Life Academy

The goal of this academy is to challenge students and staff alike to realize their true potential as students, teachers, and citizens. The dedicated staff at Lift for Life Academy is there to push all the students to their limit and help them discover their potential and character, so they can go out and achieve their dreams as students and people. They strive to achieve academic excellence from all those involved, and do this by crafting an open and respectful atmosphere where students can feel welcome and safe. Through teamwork and an expert staff, this academy helps turn prospective students into achievers and the next generation of great thinkers and citizens.
