Saint Louis Closet Co. Plans Donation for DEAF, Inc.
MAPLEWOOD, Mo. – Throughout November, a portion of all Saint Louis Closet Co. sales will be put aside for a donation that will go towards DEAF, Inc. This nonprofit offers American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting and community-based services.
"DEAF, Inc. is thrilled to partner with another local organization, Saint Louis Closet Co.,” said Sara Prechtel, executive director of DEAF, Inc. “It is through local partnerships like this that DEAF, Inc. is able to continue promoting awareness of issues and solutions related to deaf, hard-of-hearing, and access to communication. There are things we can do that you may not be able to, and there are things you can do that we may not be able to. Together, we can do great things to enrich the lives of the 300,000 children and adults with hearing loss in St. Louis."
DEAF, Inc. will utilize the funds raised to support their “Breakfast with Signing Santa” event that takes place in December 2020. At this event, deaf and hard-of-hearing children, as well as Children of Deaf Adults (CODAs), will have an opportunity to have breakfast with Santa Claus, who is also deaf and uses sign language to communicate.
The nonprofit’s primary focus is ensuring that all persons with hearing loss have equal access to information that is available to their peers without language barriers or disabilities. This is accomplished through a meaningful unity of community training, education, advocacy, media, and interpreting. Locally, they serve 500 clients and customers per year.
