Alliance will now donate $5 to The Little Bit Foundation for each new membership it opens. This will be an ongoing charitable partnership with The Little Bit Foundation, who does great work in breaking down barriers to learning for underrepresented St. Louis children by providing goods and services such as socks, underwear, shoes, books, coats, as well as dental and vision services.
“We are thrilled by our partnership with Alliance Credit Union and its members,” said Rosemary Hanley, CEO and Co-Founder of The Little Bit Foundation. “This campaign will help further our mission to break down barriers to learning and close the achievement gap of underrepresented student populations in St. Louis. Little Bit exists because of the generosity and involvement of people that care about the hopes and dreams of all our children.”
Why The Little Bit Foundation?
Reports reveal that child poverty in the state of Missouri has risen 66% in the last decade, and it impacts 39% of children in the City of St. Louis. This means they likely come to school hungry and without a coat; they don’t have shoes that fit, have never seen a dentist or worn eyeglasses to correct a vision problem, and they have lives of constant change and crisis.
