PLACES

Mary Martha Thrift Shop

Wentzville Mayor Nick Guccione presents Mary Martha board president Linda Adams with a plaque recognizing the organization's service to the community.

Mary Martha Thrift Shop, a non-for-profit resale shop located at 9 West Koenig St. in Wentzville, celebrated 50 years helping the St. Charles County community on Wednesday, April 20. Attending the celebration were Wentzville Mayor Nick Guccione and over 150 volunteers.

Mary Martha was first started by Velma Brewer, the first registered nurse hired by the Wentzville School District. Brewer saw the need to provide winter coats to needy children, and asked her friends and family for their children’s outgrown coats to begin her ministry. When the donations became too much, Brewer asked if a clothing depot could be set up to organize the clothing and provide for those in need. Mary Martha's opened in 1971 and from there evolved into what it is today, which is a resale shop that sells clothing and household items at substantially reduced prices.

Fischer & Frichtel Homes has once again pledged to donate $1,000 for every home it sells from Memorial Day through July 4 to Folds of Honor-St. Louis Chapter, a nonprofit that provides educational scholarships and support for the spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members. This is the second year in a row Fischer & Frichtel has made this donation to Folds of Honor; the 2021 donation totaled $20,000.

Mercy Hospital Jefferson, Mercy Hospital South, Mercy Hospital St. Louis and Mercy Hospital Washington earned A grades in the Spring 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for achievements in protecting patients from harm and errors in the hospital.
