Saint Louis Closet Co. Donates to Ready Readers, Helps Preschool Students in Low-Income Communities
“Ready Readers is incredibly grateful to be partnering with Saint Louis Closet Co. as the August Closets for a Cause non-profit,” says Program Director, Maggie Strube. “Our organization brings the brain-boosting benefits of read-aloud sessions and gift books to preschool children living in low-income communities. Cultivating a strong partnership with Saint Louis Closet Co. will allow us to do even more for the children we serve.”
Saint Louis Closet Co. has donated a total of $59,976.65 to non-profits in the St. Louis area since the start of their program, Closets for a Cause, in 2020. Every month a portion of the company’s profits are donated to a worthy cause to help those in need.

Currently, Ready Readers engages in over 9,000 children’s story times, pen pal activities, and other early literacy programming designed to build and strengthen early literacy foundations, engage children invaluable discussion experiences, and develop strong, trusting relationships with trauma-informed adults.
