$5K City of St. Charles Grant Received
Sending a big thank you to the City of St. Charles for approving a $5,000 grant to help O.A.S.I.S. provide pantry clients with non-food Basic Essentials. It is estimated that Basic Essentials, like laundry detergent, shampoo, toothpaste, bar soap, deodorant, and toilet paper can cost upwards of $60 per month. Having to do without these essentials can affect an individual’s sense of self-worth and dignity. For this reason, the O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry decided to purchase non-food Basic Essentials for our clients. This $5,000 grant will help cover the $15,000 annual expense incurred by the pantry to provide these Basic Essentials to our clients.
Thank you to the Living Lord Ladies Retreat for putting together some appetizing soup mixes for the O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry Clients. They sure smelled wonderful as I was transporting them to the food pantry. Food kits are very popular at the pantry, and healthy soups are a wonderful way to feed a family. Thank you for sharing your time and talents to help pantry clients while on your retreat.
