Saturday Jubilee on June 24

Saturday Jubilee 2017 will be held on June 24, 2017.

If you want more information, contact Mary Szpatoski or call (636) 978-2277, ext. 401.

More of our neighbors are experiencing something many never thought possible in our plentiful area…hunger. Local pantries struggle to keep up with the increased demand, particularly in the summer when children are out of school. Every summer, we team up with Operation Food Search to organize Saturday Jubilee, a one day food drive. You can help!

Volunteer to be a Store Team Captain.

Area grocery stores need to be staffed. If you can organize a group of 10-15 volunteers to staff a store on the day of July 30th and coordinate the volunteers into 2 hours shifts, we need to hear from you now. All information and materials needed are provided. Greet shoppers and collect food items that go directly to local food pantries. This is a great volunteer opportunity for organizations such as church groups, scouting groups, service clubs or businesses. We do our best to match your group with a grocery store in your neighborhood.

Volunteer your time during Saturday Jubilee.

Spend two hours at a local grocery store and collect food items that go directly to local food pantries.

Conduct a food drive.

Collect non-perishable food at your work, your church, in your neighborhood or as a family project during July.

Donate food items at your local grocery store.

With your help, families in our community will be given food to help them through difficult times. And…they will know that in their time of need, their neighbors cared.

This year’s Christmas Shop served 259 families and 705 children from St. Charles County. Each child received 2 new toys, a coat, hats, gloves, scarves, books and stocking stuffers. None of this would be possible without the monetary donations, toy drives, coat collections, “Blitzen the Bars” sponsors, pub crawlers, and 80+ volunteers. THANK YOU for helping to make Christmas happier for so many families and children!
