Charities We Support

St. Louis Area Foodbank

The St. Louis Area Foodbank began its service to the St. Louis community in 1975. Since that time, they've grown to become the Bi-State region's largest non-profit 501 food distribution center dedicated to feeding those in need. Today, they continue to be an organization that relies on the generosity of others to make a difference in the lives of those in need of food assistance. The St. Louis Area Foodbank's mission is to feed hungry people by distributing food through partner agencies and educate the public about the nature of and solutions to the problems of hunger. With the donations received from community food drives, retail partnerships and the Feeding America network, the St. Louis Area Foodbank works to provide solutions to the hunger crisis through our programs such as The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), and Transitional Housing Programs. Many Mungenast Alton Toyota employees have pledged a portion of each paycheck to benefit the St. Louis Area Foodbank.

KlaasKids Foundation

KlaasKids Foundation was established in 1994 to give meaning to the death of twelve-year-old kidnap and murder victim Polly Hannah Klaas and to create a legacy in her name that would be protective of children for generations to come. The Foundation's mission is to stop crimes against children. The Mungenast Automotive Family is honored to be KlaasKids Foundation's oldest and most loyal sponsor; we have been hosting the KlaasKids's signature child safety event, the Print-A-Thon, since 1996. This high energy child safety event utilizes 21st Century technology to fingerprint and photograph children, and also provides parents with DNA collection kits, pro-active child safety information, and a nine-point plan on what to do if their child disappears. Held in cities all over the country, the Print-A-Thon is always underwritten by community minded sponsors like Mungenast Alton Toyota who wish to maintain safe communities and give back to their loyal customers.
