The fundraiser allows people to purchase a sausage biscuit sandwich or egg biscuit sandwich for a $1 donation to the organization during breakfast hours. During the “Have a Heart…Heat a Home” event, volunteers were at restaurants accepting additional donations for Heat Up St. Louis.

Heat Up St. Louis helps people without heat or whose energy bills are delinquent.

The goal of the 2020 fundraiser was to raise $400,000.
