ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Mavis Merritt has been giving back to the St. Louis community since she was a teenager. Her civic and community volunteer activities include organizations from Girl Scouts to NAACP, Top Teens of America, Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, Sickle Cell Walk and so much more.
Merritt focuses most of her efforts into causes that support women. She donates her time, goods and services and her nominee tells us, "You may not know her name, but if you’re in St. Louis, you’ve probably seen the results of her quiet efforts to make someone else’s life a little better."
Mavis is on of four St. Louis finalists who could win a trip to New York for a special taping of "The Mel Robbins Show" and presentation with Mel Robbins during the month of March which is International Women's Month.
Be sure to tune into FOX 2 News at 850am on February 18, February 25 and March 3rd to see the remaining finalists! One local winner will be announced on FOX 2 News Friday, March 6th at 840am.
