Retired senior citizen, Mr. T of Tower Grove South, still lives in the first home he purchased with his wife of 32 years. He spends his free time driving other seniors to/from the grocery store. Last fall, Mr. T’s wife passed away, and he fell behind on property taxes. When we first met Mr. T, he had already tried to give the City every dollar he had to his name…yet it wasn’t quite enough for the Collector of Revenue. The house was scheduled for the St. Louis City tax auction block on May 19. But thanks to your generosity, in less than 24 hours, PRTR was able to raise a few hundred dollars to help Mr. T get caught up, and he got to keep his home. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family in their time of healing.
