WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. — It’s holiday light season and a neighborhood in Webster Groves aims to make a difference in the lives of others.
Neighbors along the summit opened their homes and yards to strangers, all for a good cause. Trash cans will be placed throughout the neighborhood to collect non-perishable food donations for Operation Food Search.
“The holiday and holiday season is all about giving back and that’s what we’re trying to do here on Summit Avenue. We’re really trying to give back to the people who need it most this holiday season,” said Jack McGowan. He created the Miracle on Summit in 2021.
“These children are in need. Food donations have been down here across the country due to inflation and so collecting and giving food is extremely important and food banks really rely on that,” McGowan said.
The neighborhood light display continues to grow, even including model trains and nearby businesses.
“Last year we got one of the food donation containers here and this year we decided to make it even better. So we created this one-of-a-kind 18-carat opal and diamond pendant that we’re giving away, with all proceeds benefiting Operation Food Search,” said Peter Sutton, President of Fire and Facet Studios.
Raffle tickets cost $5 and proceeds go directly to Operation Food Search.
“The drawing will take place on the 21st. You don’t have to be there to win. All we need is a name and a phone number. I think it’s a really beautiful piece, just in time for the holidays and most importantly, it will help feed a lot of people,” Sutton said.
