(July 15, 2020) – St. Louis Blues and Ameren Missouri are awarding $27,500 to local charities as part of the Power Play Goals for Kids program The program chooses four local charities who are helping kids achieve their goals every day.

Ameren Missouri and the St. Louis Blues donated $500 for every power play goal the Blues scored – home or away, all season long. At March 13, when the regular season ended, the Blues had scored 49 power play goals, so the total dollars raised is $24,500 – the largest donation in the Power Play Goals for Kids program history.
Earlier in the season, fans voted for their favorite charity. The Midwest Children's Burn Camp received the most fan votes, winning the earnings from the program. This is a camp for burn-injured children ages 6 to 17 where they can forget about their scars and enjoy fun and friendship. This year, due to COVID-19, camp for 50 children will be held virtually.
Campers will be picking up supplies for this year's virtual camp on July 15. The Blues and Ameren Missouri will be there to present a check to help cover the cost of those supplies.
The other three participating charities each will receive $1,000.
