ABOUT OLD NEWSBOYS DAY
There are many charities in St. Louis, but perhaps none of them are as extensive or synonymous with St. Louis, as Old Newsboys Day, which is spearheaded by the Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis, LLC.
Old Newsboys Day is a charitable effort that has raised millions of dollars for hundreds of area children's charities. Our organization performs fundraising activities throughout the year, and money will be raised with special editions of the Suburban Journals being sold at hundreds of street corners. The project involves thousands of volunteers and contributors.
Every year, on the Thursday before Thanksgiving thousands of volunteers wake up very early in the morning, put on their customary smile and Old Newsboys Day apron and take to the streets to raise money for children's organizations funded by the Old Newsboys Fund. There are thousands volunteers on hundreds of corners. The special edition of the newspaper is written by area high school students and highlights regional charities that benefit from Old Newsboys Day funding.
The OLOL Vincentians will be distributing the newspaper at the intersection of Asbury and Forsyth – we thank you for your generosity.
