In 2010, 2-year-old Ella McPheeters was diagnosed with autism. Her parents, Hope and Sam, soon became frustrated with the long waiting lists for behavioral-therapy programs and other services and decided to do something about it. They rallied the local community and won a Pepsi Refresh Project grant to found Ella's Hope for Autism. Ella’s Hope aims to raise awareness of autism and increase the availability of therapeutic resources for young children with autism-spectrum disorders. Working with the Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Ella's Hope also sponsors scholarships for families and maintains an autism lending library.
Mystique Boutique—an upscale mobile fashion resale shop replete with built-in dressing rooms and walls that drop into a stage—offers fashion-minded shoppers in the metropolitan St. Louis area an opportunity to buy name-brand and designer resale apparel while helping the community. Patrons choose from upscale outfits, shoes, and accessories for less than they'd find in stores or when haggling with a fashion model on the sidewalk.
All proceeds benefit Mystique Boutique's parent foundation, Connections to Success, which works on long-lasting and multi-faceted solutions to poverty. Connections to Success stands by its participants every step of the way: life-transformation coaches and volunteer mentors help participants transition from challenging situations, set personal goals, attend workshops in personal and professional development, learn job-specific skills, and finally apply and interview for the job they want. Connections to Success' core programs include "Pathways to Success" and "Dress for Success Midwest".

Located near the intersection of I-70 and I-270, St. Louis Area Foodbank has easy access to 12 counties in Illinois and 14 counties in Missouri. It uses this real estate well, too, sending out trucks loaded up with more than 35 million pounds of food to 500 pantries and soup kitchens in those 26 counties. Those partner organizations then deliver that food to hungry families—something they've done since the Foodbank's inception in 1975.
While feeding as many people as it does, the organization still makes an effort to follow the lives of the people it helps. In the past, St. Louis Area Foodbank fed Doris, a senior citizen from Farmington who volunteers at the local food pantry, Ken and Krista from Carlyle, who had to choose between paying bills and feeding their children, and with Dianna from Salem, who lost everything in a fire. The organization feeds more than 57,000 people just like this every week, supporting them when they're unable to make ends meet.
