The Ethical Society Mid Rivers participates in several ethical action activities throughout the year. We maintain a stretch of highway in Wentzville, as part of the "Adopt a Highway" program. We provide a dinner monthly to the residents and staff at the Youth in Need emergency shelter in St. Charles. We provide supplies all year long for the food pantry at FISH, which is also located in our county. We have also visited area nursing homes, animal shelters, provided care packages to area homeless people and have hosted letter writing campaigns to lawmakers when issues arise that we are passionate about supporting or opposing.
The Women of Worth group, also known as WOW, meets monthly for lunch on the first Friday of every month. This is primarily a social group, which also creates handicraft items that are offered for sale at the annual Oktoberfest in St. Charles every fall. The WOW group also participates in various culturally based activities throughout the year.
One of many charities supported by the Ethical Society of Mid Rivers is KIVA. We sustain micro loans to people in developing nations, in order for them to alleviate poverty. More information about KIVA can be found here: http://www.kiva.org/
