Take BACK@YOU to the next level!

BACK@YOU  was created to help open people’s eyes to those that so many of us walk blindly by each day. The homeless are not invisible, and we should not act as if they don’t exist. We all deserve to be treated with dignity and kindness. No one is less of a person for not having a home. Guided by these principles, we fill backpacks with essential supplies and basic comforts, and our volunteers give out these backpacks for our homeless neighbors in St. Louis when the cold weather approaches. We make each of our backpacks to show its recipient that someone cares. They may be small gestures in the grand scheme of things, but they are filled with love. BACK@YOU is off to a good start as a Missouri nonprofit corporation. Now we need to take the next step and become a 501(c)3 certified charity so we can we can make a bigger impact. Your donation will help make that a reality. We are collecting only a small amount to pay the IRS filing fee and to cover a few other initial expenses. Being a 501(c)3 will open up new revenue streams and opportunities for our young organization. So please help us spread a little kindness. It might come right back at you!
