SSM Cardinal Glennon, Shriner's Children's Hospital,  Ranken Jordan Bridge Hospital, and  Hawthorne

Children's Hospital. Hearthside is honored to collect new, unwrapped toys all year round!

Hearthside Grill & Fireplace Ltd. has also contributed to the Zion Lutheran Church Food Pantry during the annual Grill Fest in April. Hearthside offered a free bottle of sauce or a free propane tank refill with the donation of canned goods! Hearthside is proud to be a community supporter donating hundreds of cans of food because of our great customers!

When our community comes together, there is nothing we can't accomplish!

Gateway Classic Cars sponsored a car show to benefit Fire Truck O'Toys

with the help of Hearthside Grill & Fireplace providing the seating, grills. labor, tables and smiles! It was a huge WIN for our whole community! 

We love supporting our local boy scouts as well! Boy Scout Troop 54

sold drinks during the Grill Fest but also took time to enjoy the antique firetruck from Fire Truck O'Toys!

Our community is everything to us, and we are proud of the mutual support!
