ST. LOUIS, Mo (KMOV.com) – As severe weather season is approaching, the community in north St. Louis is working to make sure it’s residents are prepared.

Weather radios were given out to senior citizens at St. Augustine’s Church on Saturday through their community outreach program and “Better Family Life.”

The radio giveaway was all a part of a mission for the community to take back their neighborhood and the older generation said it starts with them.

“My generation is the generation that can remember when it was, we are bringing in the younger generation so they can take root and grow from this and continue the movement,” said community member Ronald Ruffin. “Before we pass the torch, we have to light it.”

The group meets once a week to strategize and take action on making their neighborhood a better place.
