Building Restoration Campaign

$30,000 goal

Campaign created 1 month ago

The 100 Black Men of America was founded in 1983 with the mission of providing mentoring resources to underprivileged youth in the area of education, health & wellness, financial literacy, and leadership.  One of the original cities to be awarded with a chapter for this organization was St. Louis.  The 100 Black Men of Metropolitan St. Louis Chapter provides these services to over 500 youth per year, operating as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

In 2006, with the financial assistance of local government and civic organizations, the 100 Black Men of Metropolitan St. Louis acquired land and broke ground on a building, now located at 4631 Delmar Boulevard in St. Louis.  This building was designed to house our youth program and community events as we continue our mission and advocacy for the community.  The St. Louis Chapter is one of the few chapters operating with a brick and mortar building.

Over the recent Labor Day weekend, the organization's building was vandalized and damaged when an individual attempted to remove copper from the water system.  Though unsuccessful in removing the copper piping, the attempt caused a break in the water line, flooding 80 percent of the building.  It is estimated that removal and recovery will exceed $30,000 in total.  While we are working to repair the damage, it is felt that this reckless vandalism will have a devastating impact on the organization for many years.
