Welcome to the Missouri/Southern Illinois USA Cares’ web page:

Welcome to the Missouri/Southern Illinois Chapter! Our chapter provides support for the entire St Louis Metropolitan Region. Our goal is to build a strong volunteer base dedicated to spreading awareness about USA Cares and raise funds for the USACares Mission through fun, creative, and engaging opportunities throughout the communities. Our Chapter is building a dedicated volunteer base throughout our Region. We welcome participation from all who share our values and vision and are committed to supporting our active duty military, Veterans and their Families—through the unique mission of USA Cares nationwide. If you would like to start a branch in your town, join an existing branch, or just give one hour to this cause please let me know today at the email or phone number below.  If now is not the time for you to join us, please contact me to learn about other opportunities to support USA Cares’ mission. Missouri/Southern Illinois have numerous military installations and bases:

. Fort Leonard Wood is a large Army training post located in the heart of the Ozark region in the state of Missouri.

. Whiteman Air Force Base is located in Knob Knoster, Missouri which is approximately 60 miles southeast of Kansas City, Missouri in rural Johnson County. The base is home to 3,800 active duty military and 5,000 family members. The base employs 902 civilian workers. . Marine Corps Mobilization Command is the general and most important branch operated by the United States Marine Corps Reserves. The installation is relatively new in the armed military. The headquarters of the command is located in Kansas City, Missouri.

. Scott AFB is one of the multiple US military bases operated by the Air Force. It is located in southern Illinois, close to Belleville. Our communities are huge supporters of our military and understand the challenges they face alongside their families. Please contact us at 314-484-1094, if you are interested in getting involved with a local organization, devoted to serving those who have served us.

There is much need throughout the Military Veteran community that can be met with a collaboration of our St Louis Metro Entrepreneurs and Businesses.

We are each in a position to serve our Military Veterans through our collective resources. We are experiencing a CALL TO DUTY to those who have served our country.

Many resources need to be replenished, increased, and introduced to serve the many Military Veterans and Families in our community.

 

BENEFITS OF THIS NETWORKING GROUP:

You will be networking with other like-minded businesses owners, with Military Veterans, and perhaps find your future employee. Opportunities to introduce & grow your business within the Military community are available.
