June Updates from The Scott Frederick Team

From the Desk of Scott Frederick…

Being involved in the community we serve is one of the best ways to give back. Our first responders are one group that is close to my heart. As a former Firefighter/Paramedic with the City of St. Louis, I know how tough the “job” can be. We select a St. Louis City firehouse to visit every 4-6 weeks. We bring them lunch and spend some time with the crew. We want them to know how thankful we are for their service. Another way we show gratitude for their service is by being an affiliate of the St. Louis HERO Network. This non-profit, started by firefighters in 2018, aims to assist local first responders and military families by promoting their businesses. A third organization very important to my team is the St. Louis Realtors. Megan is the Affiliate Council Chair and Board Member for 2018. Over the years we have been involved with many events, always eager to be a sponsor. The recent Realtor Appreciation Day at St Louis Realtors, pictured above, was an incredible success. This event was a great way for us and all the affiliates to show our appreciation to our Realtors. We can’t begin to emphasize how important being involved is. Thank you to all!
