Shop Out Hunger on May 19

May 19 will certainly not be a lazy Saturday. We’ll be too busy fighting hunger in the St. Louis bi-state area with over 120 participating grocery stores! To make it happen, we need over 1,000 volunteers to greet customers and collect donations in this regionwide food drive. Would you join us?

Please sign up to join hundreds of other volunteers at Dierbergs, Schnucks, Shop-n-Save or Straub’s locations and help stock your local food pantries for the busy summer months.

Saturday, May 12th Stamp Out Hunger – Letter Carriers Food Drive

On Saturday, May 12th the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will hold America’s largest one-day food drive. This event began in 1993 with the goal of having at least one NALC branch in each of the 50 states participating, and the results were astounding. More than 11 million pounds of food was collected, making it a one-day U.S. food collection record.

This year the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is being held on Saturday, May 12. That day food will be collected by our letter carriers from Alaska to Florida and Maine to Hawaii then distributed to local food banks and pantries. All food collected stays local, which is why the O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry is asking for your help.

The pantry needs volunteers to help with receiving, sorting, and storing items collected by the letter carriers. Volunteers are needed from 12:00pm – 5:00pm, but working a partial shift is fine.  This is a big one-day project, and O.A.S.I.S. needs your support, here’s where you can help. O.A.S.I.S. needs:

  • 10-12 experienced O.A.S.I.S. pantry volunteers who are familiar with pantry items to lead less experienced volunteers.
  • 1-2 volunteers at each post office receiving, unloading, and weighting items collected by letter carriers.
  • At least 2 volunteers with pick-up trucks to shuttle items collected from post offices to the pantry.

If you are available to help or know someone who is, email oasisfoodpan@aol.com or contact Mike Wraspir at 636-293-1184.

Please be a part of this one-day nationwide food collection event by volunteering at O.A.S.I.S. or placing bagged non-perishable food items next to your mailbox for pick up on Saturday, May 12th. Let’s Stamp Out Hunger in our neighborhoods.
