We Need Drivers & Volunteers in Nursery
Hello Welcome Neighbor volunteers and potential volunteers!
Now that summer vacation is here, and Ramadan is almost over, We are really in need of volunteers to DRIVE our English students to and/or from the church on M & W mornings and/or help in DAY CARE. It would be so helpful if people could start filling up the slots in advance. We have sign ups until the end of October so feel free to sign up ahead of time. We just want to be sure we have coverage. We have car seats if you need them. It is an ideal way to get to know these wonderful women and their beautiful kids.
Classes are held at Grace United Methodist Church at 6199 Waterman Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63112, which is right off Skinker, just a few blocks south of the U City Loop.
If you sign up to drive, please email Madeleine Grucza for the addresses and phone number at [email protected] After you receive the roster, please call or text the student(s) you are picking up to let them know you will be driving them. Thank you so much for your help!

Welcome Neighbor STL In The News
The Syrian Refugees Escaped War, Only to Land in One of St. Louis’ Toughest Neighborhoods
By Robert Langellier
May 16, 2018
In 2016, Bueler founded the grassroots organization Welcome Neighbor STL after she was horrified by an RFT story detailing the beating of teenage Syrians in north city, and she’s been rallying St. Louisans to provide support for refugees ever since.
Mission of Welcome Neighbor STL: We are a community group supporting immigrants and refugees as they begin a new life in St. Louis. We offer emotional and social support primarily by partnering volunteers with new families.
