Wanted: 250 thousand volunteers

Monday, 20 January 2014 11:15 Published in Local News

As St. Louis city continues its' 250th birthday celebration in 2014, there is an ambitious effort underway to encourage volunteerism.

Erin Budde, executive director of STL250, tells the St. Louis Post Dispatch officials are seeking 250,000 people to volunteer this year.  She calls it an ambitious project and goal, but points out that the St. Louis region has consistently ranked high nationally in its volunteer efforts.  

A report released Saturday looking at the “civic health” of Missouri shows that the state ranks 15th in the country in volunteerism, with 30 percent of residents participating compared with 27 percent nationwide.

The St. Louis region does even better, at 32 percent.  The region also fares better than the rest of the country in donating to charity, with 57 percent of residents doing so, compared with 51 percent in the U.S. overall.

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois high school student and his parents will get $910,000 under a jury award related to injuries the teenager sustained in a bicycle accident.
The (Alton) Telegraph reports that Edwardsville High School student Trevor Brady says he plans to use some of the money for college tuition. He'll receive the money under a jury verdict last week in Madison County.
The trial involved Brady's lawsuit against Plocher Construction Co., which was building a new office building in Alton and admitted it misplaced a steel beam that Brady hit while bicycling to middle school in March 2010.
The accident left Brady with facial injuries and missing teeth.
Brady's lawyer argued for $3.3 million, while an attorney for Plocher suggested $250,000. Plocher's attorney declined to publicly discuss the verdict.
