ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. – Saturday was the start of a sale happening at the St. Peters Rec-Plex. Just Between Friends (JBF) St. Charles County is holding a family event to give families the things they need and more at an affordable price.

At the sale, families enjoyed buying quality items at an affordable price. Organizers say everything is 50-90% off retail prices.

For the items that dont sell, consigners can donate them to Butterfly Haven where they will go to local foster families.

It wasn’t just parents at the sale either.

Keeyna McCall works at a preschool and made the trek from Overland to St. Charles County.

“I found lots of little toys for my kids at work,” McCall said.

Masks were mandatory and JBF kept space between shoppers for social distancing.

Mccall said with the stresses of the pandemic, it’s nice to get out to support a positive event while engaging safely with the community.

“It’s a fun environment. It’s bright,” McCall said. “Finding lots of things meeting new people with the same interests especially with what’s going on right now.”

If you couldn’t make it out Saturday, you can still enjoy the sales from 9 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
