Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria to Host September Giveback Tuesday Event Benefiting The Oasis Institute

ST. LOUIS, MO/September 07, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria in Town and Country is proud to announce their upcoming Giveback Tuesday event, which will benefit The Oasis Institute.  The event is slated for Tuesday, September 26.

Every month, Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria features a local nonprofit charity and donates 100 percent of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the charity.  Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included.  So far, Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria has donated more than $120,000 to local nonprofit organizations.

Funds raised from this Giveback Tuesday event will help support the organization’s Intergenerational Tutoring Program, which is the largest tutoring program in the nation.  The funds will help purchase books, create more session plans, and initiate recruitment efforts for new tutors.

“We have 1,997 tutors in St. Louis in 213 schools in 23 school districts,” said Greg Lukeman, National Development Director at The Oasis Institute.  “For some students, their tutor is the only consistent adult role model in their lives.”

Founded by Marylen Mann and a group of educators and volunteers in 1982, Oasis combines mentoring with literacy interventions.  Their tutors work with academically at-risk K-3 grade students who are not reading at their grade level.

In St. Louis alone, The Oasis Institute’s tutors have reached 4,307 students who are academically at-risk.

“Before third grade, students are learning to read, and after third grade, they read to learn,” Lukeman continued.  “If there isn’t an intervention by third grade, the students will continue to struggle and will more than likely never catch up academically with their peers.  There is a higher chance that they will also drop out of school.”

In November 2012, The Oasis Institute was named to the Social Impact 100 Index, a list of the top 100 nonprofit organizations that have broad social impact in the United States.  The organization has also received recognition from the Surgeon General, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the National Council on Aging.

Additionally, The Oasis Institute partnered with Generation to Generation, powered by Encore.org through Next Avenue/PBS.org in November 2016 in order to mobilize older adults to help children thrive.  The campaign aims to engage one million people ages 50 and over to stand up and show up for kids.

Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria is open every day at 11 a.m. and features Happy Hour specials from 3 to 5 p.m. and 9 to 10 p.m. Carry-outs are also available.

Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria to Host July Giveback Tuesday Event Benefiting All Among Us

Katie's Pizza and Pasta Osteria to Host July Giveback Tuesday Event Benefiting All Among Us

ST. LOUIS, MO/July 16, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria in Rock Hill is proud to announce their upcoming Giveback Tuesday event, which will benefit All Among Us. The event is slated for Tues., July 25.

Every month, Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria features a local nonprofit charity and donates 100 percent of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the charity. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included. So far, Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria has donated more than $100,000 to local nonprofit organization.

This month’s Giveback Tuesday will also mark the restaurant’s third anniversary of starting up the monthly event.

“We truly believe in the spirit of giving back and supporting the community that we serve,” said Katie Lee Collier, owner of Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria. “That’s why we had decided to hold this event every month, to help out worthy charities in need.”

Funds raised from this Giveback Tuesday event will go directly toward helping the organization build funds to renovate their building at 107 Carson Road in Ferguson, which is being used as a women’s care center.

“Our desire is to make a safe place for women and children to heal and move forward,” said Kristin Hayes of All Among Us. “This facility will be a warm and welcoming home for women and children, many of whom come from abusive relationships, are chronically homeless, or are struggling with mental illness. We also walk alongside our clients as we enroll their children in school and assist the clients with obtaining their GEDs and health insurance, teaching them about finances, finding them jobs where they can succeed, helping them find permanent homes, and more.”

All Among Us, Inc., is a young non-profit organization. Cathryn Shaw, the Executive Director of All Among Us, founded the organization in July 2016 to better serve those in need after working in the city for 11 years with chronically homeless and single mothers who were living in extreme poverty. The organization is currently focusing on opening a 24/7 women’s care center in Ferguson.

“We want to fill the gap created by the closure of three major shelters in the city by opening this care center for women and children in Ferguson,” said Hayes. “Last year, we had an impact in over 600 lives. Many of these people have not received love, care, or dignity in years. It’s very gratifying to see how quickly someone heals once they feel safe, have people care for them, and receive something as simple as new clothes, a healthy meal, and a daily shower.”

Zion Lutheran Church of Ferguson is providing the proposed building rent-free for 10 years. The building, which was constructed in 1927 and has sat vacant for nine years, is in need of ADA-compliant renovations, including the installation of showers, a renovated kitchen, new drywall, paint, flooring, and more.

“We are grateful to Zion Lutheran Church of Ferguson and appreciate Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria for believing in us and helping us as we get our feet on the ground financially,” Hayes said.

Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria is open every day at 11 a.m. and features Happy Hour specials from 3 to 5 p.m. and 9 to 10 p.m. Carry-outs are also available.
