Hearthside Grill & Fireplace Ltd. is dedicated to making a positive impact on our community! For over 8 years, Hearthside has been a major contributor and drop-off location for Fire Truck O'Toys.  FTOT was founded by Mark's niece, Kenzie Scott, in 2011 after Kenzie has spend three years in a wheelchair due to a degenerative bone disease. During her treatment and surgery times at St. Louis Children's Hospital, Kenzie noticed kids not receiving gifts over the holidays either due to family not wanting to leave their child's side or financial hardship. After confiding with her

parents, Kenzie talked to her school and church,

Zion Lutheran Belleville, plus all of her friends and family,

and together raised over 500 toys the first year! By 2017,

      Fire Truck O'Toys has raised over 24,500 toys in support

      of our five local children's hospitals:

      St. Louis Children's Hospital, SSM Cardinal Glennon,

      Mercy Children's, Shriner's Children's Hospital and

      Ranken Jordan Bridge Hospital. Hearthside is happy

      to collect new, unwrapped toys 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 and tables!

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!
