Shelby Steingraeber:

Miss Missouri's Outstanding Teen 2012


As a four year volunteer and advocate for the United Way of Greater St. Louis, Shelby promotes community involvement by including this non-profit organization's toll free volunteer resource hotline, "2-1-1", in speaking engagements and presentaions throughout the state


What is the United Way?

The United Way is a non-profit organization that brings communities together as one for the common good, and works to raise funds and promote volunteerism for hundreds of non-profit charities and organizations across the US. Almost 90 cents of every dollar donated goes back into the community United Way chapter in which the funds are raised!

Why should I call "2-1-1"?

The United Way's "2-1-1" volunteer referral number allows Missourians to find help, or get help, with the assistance of United Way operators. Did you know....


*"2-1-1" is toll free, and available 24/7


* This hotline has connected more than 30,000 people with volunteer organizations and opportunities that fit their needs, shcedules, and interests


*Not only can you give help, but you can get help by calling this hotline. "2-1-1" builds from a database of nearly 200 agencies throughout the state of Missouri, and can connect those in need with non-profit organizations that can serve them


*In emergency situations, those in need should always dial 911
