St. Charles County is known for its spirit. The community supports a professional, minor league baseball team and did, until 2006, patronize a minor pro team in the United Hockey League. The Missouri county has held portions of the U.S. Olympics and hosted the Run for the Wall. But what many St. Charles Countians will tell you about their community is that it’s the people’s spirit of giving that makes them proud to reside here. The phrase “take care of our own” is often used in St. Charles County circles, yet the community’s giving often spills over its borders.
