BJC | The BJC Blended Connection group is sponsoring a personal care and household items drive to benefit Innovative Concept Academy students (grades 9-12) and their families.
Located in north St. Louis, Innovative Concept Academy provides alternative education for students in the St. Louis Public School district.
