ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The thought of the St. Louis Rams moving to Los Angeles and the mere sight of Stan Kroenke may drive you to thoughts of tossing or burning your team gear, the owner of Crown Candy Kitchen is asking you to reconsider.

In an article appearing in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Andy Karandzieff is imploring jilted fans to donate their sweatshirts, hoodies, jerseys, and other merchandise to worthy causes.

Crown Candy Kitchen posted this message to Facebook:

“We want our last act as Rams fans to be the best it can be! Bring in your Rams clothing, hats, scarves and more to Crown Candy Kitchen and we will donate all the gently worn items to those in need. We may have lost our team, but not our sense of community!! Everyone that brings in an item won’t walk away empty handed – how does a bit of CCK chocolate sound in return?!?!

We will be taking donations starting today through Monday (January 13 – 18) So come down and see us! Thanks for keeping it classy St. Louis!!”
