Don Carlson, St. Andrew's Charitable Foundation 2017 Ageless Remarkable St. Louisan Honoree

Don Carlson is our featured Ageless- Remarkable St. Louisan of the day! 

Don Carlson, 82, volunteers each week to collect tons of food for area food pantries at the Ladue Chapel and St. Louis Area Food Bank, tutors fifth graders at Hamilton School, and serves his church as an ordained elder. Don is also a long-time volunteer and supporter of ALIVE and the Women’s Self Help Center which deals with the prevention of domestic violence and the support of its victims.

He was awarded “The Good Guy” award from Safe Connections, an agency addressing domestic violence and its victims. He has served on the boards of several shelters and agencies, and now plays a key role on the Domestic and Family Violence Council of St. Louis County. In his “spare time,” Don loves traveling, spending time with family, and enjoying opera and the symphony.
