Benefiting Charities Since 1966, One Stitch at a Time

Sign of the Arrow was established in 1966 by the St. Louis Alumnae Club of Pi Beta Phi to provide philanthropic support to the community. The shop is staffed by 100+ community volunteers who give 19,000+ hours annually to help run Sign of the Arrow. ALL shop proceeds benefit area agencies. Since its inception, Sign of the Arrow has donated more than $3.5 million to 180+ local charities. Customers truly impact the lives of St. Louisans by shopping at Sign of the Arrow.
