ARCO was recently the presenting sponsor for the 19th Annual Places for People Charity Golf Tournament. Several associates joined teams for the outing at Missouri Bluffs Golf Club in St. Louis, MO. The event helped raise more than $60,000 that will help to provide high-quality, recovery-based treatment for mental illness and substance use disorders.
Places for People is a non-profit healthcare organization serving people with severe mental illness and substance use disorders in St. Louis, Missouri. They provide an unparalleled toolkit of programs, services, and resources for people who have serious mental illnesses, typically accompanied by complex and multilayered challenges: chronic homelessness, substance abuse disorder, primary health disorders, and trauma. Their mission statement, “Provide caring, effective services to help those with the greatest challenges recover from mental illness and associated chronic illnesses,” reflects the commitment to serve the most vulnerable people in the community.
Many of our ARCO associates are already actively serving a wide range of charity organizations in the St. Louis area. From being an ongoing volunteer, event participant, board member or contribution maker, our associates are making a difference in the St. Louis community. ARCO strives to support causes and organizations that are near and dear to its associates’ hearts. The company offers a charity donation match program and a week paid leave for associates to participate in a charity event of choice.
ARCO is thrilled to have been able to participate in the charity golf tournament to play for a cause. We admire the work that Places for People is doing to help people in St. Louis with severe mental illness and substance use disorders.
