Hazelwood Greenway Hikes

In preparation for the February 22nd meeting, there will be a group hike led by Tiffany, Director of Community Initiatives, to look at different parts of the Greenway. Hikes may be canceled if roads are icy. RSVP on Eventbrite to receive updates and to make sure we have enough equipment and group leaders to separate for groups for COVID safety.

Please dress in warm layers, wear boots or sneakers with thick socks (for mud and snow), and bring an extra mask in case your first one gets wet from the condensate of breathing warm air on a cold day. MASKS MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES.

Saturday, Mar. 6th @ 1pm -- meet at top of Elizabeth St. where the woods start. Wear boots and a mask. 

Saturday, Mar. 27th @ 1pm -- Family Hike with Venture Outdoors. Kids will get Explorer Kits they can enjoy the whole year! Please RSVP so we make sure we have enough!

Our COVID-19 Relief Grant is back!

The economic fall-out from the COVID-19 pandemic has caused extraordinary harm to our community as many people have lost their jobs or been forced to stop working in order to take care of their children or an elderly relative. 

For this reason, we are again dedicating our Neighborhood Investment Fund to assist residents in need. Click the button to apply for rent, mortgage, utilities, or property tax assistance up to $1,000. Gift cards for up to $200 to help with basic needs are also available.


**You can only apply for ONE grant.**


Additional COVID- 19 Resources
There are many organizations in our Greater Hazelwood community that are offering food and clothing assistance. There are also local, state, and federal resources for those that need rental and mortgage assistance during this time of crisis.
