It has taken me awhile to decide what I wanted to say to our supporters about what is happening in our community right now...and truth be told, I'm still not sure what to say. But I'll do my best, and hope my message gets across.

Tomika D., and her daughter, described the moment they received the news of their approval for homeownership with Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis as priceless. Although the wait was a roller coaster ride, it was all worth it. The good news was celebrated with hugs, screams, and a joyful dance!
Tomika’s six year old daughter, Desir`ee, loves to dance. She is a kindergartner at Dewell International Studies. She is a very smart little girl and loves to learn new things; and she appreciates the gift of knowledge (she teaches this to her baby dolls and teddy bears at home when she plays school!) Desir`ee also plays soccer and attends dance class.
Tomika is an alumni of UMSL (University of Missouri St. Louis) where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Although she is not using her degree in her current job, she has a strong desire to become a daycare owner because of her love for children. Tomika enjoys to shop and decorate, and now has an excuse to do both since she will become a homeowner.
Spending time together is enjoyed by taking in a movie, shopping at the mall, or visiting St. Louis Zoo. Tomika is thankful for Habitat for Humanity St Louis and the opportunity to make it possible for her to provide a home for her and her daughter. She is honored and an extremely happy HFHSL home buyer!

Cast your vote for the best chili recipe prepared by Whole Foods Market Town & Country's very own team members! All 10 of the store’s teams will compete to win $500 to be donated to their favorite charity (including Habitat STL!). Your votes, along with the votes of celebrity judges will determine the fate of the winners (there will be two winners – one determined by customer votes and one chosen by the celebrity judges for another $500 winner). And, to sweeten the pot, anyone who submits a completed voting ticket will be entered to win a $100 Whole Foods Market gift card. Whole Foods Market Town and Country are very excited to have the support of the following judges who will also determine which chili has the best flavor, best texture and utilizes the most unique recipe. Join celebrity judges, Catherine Neville, Editor of Feast Magazine, Patti and Mark Whisnant, local grass fed beef producers and owners of the Whisnant Family Farm (who have donated all of the beef for the chili recipes) and Chef Maziar (Maz) Nooran owner and chef of Flaco’s Cocina and Momo’s Taverna.
The West County Fire Department will have a fire truck here for the kiddos (in all of us) from 1 – 2:30, provided they are not called away for any emergencies. There will be some kid’s activities and live music by the Root Diggers with everything taking place outside on the sidewalk and parking lot. We’re hoping Mother Nature will cooperate, but bring an umbrella just in case!

Kathryn is retired, she was employed as a buyer and decorator for Harris-Stowe University for 33 years. She is a mother of two adult daughters and a proud grandmother of three grandchildren (two girls and one boy).
She enjoys gardening and is dedicated to watching programs on HGTV, which gives her ideas on creating and decorating. Kathryn believes she can make anything out of something. When she needs quiet time, she retreats to her backyard with a “tall glass of something good”. She enjoys playing cards, skating and going to the movies.
Most of all she enjoys watching her grandchildren grow, which is a humbling experience. She looks forward to their smiles, laughter, and all the hugs and kisses they can give her, which is a lot. Kathryn describes Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis as a wonderful program that offers an opportunity for families and individuals to accomplish homeownership, and she is excited and blessed to have the opportunity to partner with the organization.
