Meet Henry, who over the last 5 years has been greeting our troops at our Fort Leonard Wood USO facility.Henry prides himself on working every day the Fort Leonard Wood USO is open and in his 5 years of volunteering with us, he has racked up over 3,600 volunteers hours and has only missed 2 days of work at the USO! But we have to be honest, those 2 days were for his daughter’s wedding!
St. Peters' Recycle City collects aluminum cans for our Pennies for Patriots program to support the USO at Lambert International Airport. The collection drive runs from from Nov. 12 each year to Nov. 11 the following year, after which the total cans collected is converted to dollars and a check is presented to the USO.
To donate your aluminum cans to Pennies for Patriots, bring them to St. Peters’ Recycle City and place them in the specially marked dumpster under the American flag in the recyclables drop-off area. For your convenience, there is another Pennies for Patriots collection container located at City Hall outside the Cultural Arts Centre entrance.
