Axes Gives Back February ’22: Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Louis

Inspiring and enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Louis

Axes is a small, locally owned and operated physical therapy company serving our communities in the Greater St. Louis area. We’re fortunate to be able to offer our services at 14 locations, with the mission to help as many people as possible. Our profession is all about helping others and giving back. Through the service of physical and occupational therapy, we give our patients’ their livelihoods, lifestyles, and abilities back.

Since giving back is the fundamental reason that our organization exists, it was important to the ownership and staff of Axes Physical Therapy to make sure that we are doing all that we can to give back to the communities we love. Each month, Axes partners with a local, staff nominated charitable organization to donate food, goods, clothes, and funds through our “Wear Jeans, Change Lives” initiative. Employees of Axes contribute to a St. Louis area charitable cause by automatic payroll deduction and get to wear jeans to work on Fridays. In the later months of 2021 and first quarter of 2022, we are honored to have given back to 501C3s such as Spirit of Discovery Park, U.S. Naval Sea Cadets, Landon’s League, Forest Park Forever, and in February ’22, we are supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Louis.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis (BGCSTL) is dedicated to ensuring that our community’s youngsters have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures. “We believe every kid has what it takes. The mission and core beliefs of Boys & Girls Clubs fuel our commitment to promoting safe, positive and inclusive environments for all. Boys & Girls Clubs of America supports all youth and teens – of every race, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic status, and religion – in reaching their full potential.”

BGCSTL provides after-school, teen, sports, and summer programs to youth across the Bi-State Region while also providing a safe place for them to learn and grow. The Club offers programs in six core areas that provide youth with the opportunities to develop life skills that improve their prospects for success:

  • Character and Leadership Development
  • Education & Career Development
  • Health & Life Skills
  • The Arts

In Boys & Girls Clubs all across the country, nearly 4 million youth receive the support and guidance they need to build better futures for themselves and their communities. Thank you to our Axes patients, staff, friends, and clients for your continued support of our small business, assisting those in need, and contributing to our greatest mission – to give back.
