Sending a big thanks to all who participated in this year’s challenge.

O.A.S.I.S. Golf Tournament and Banquet – Monday, June 3
The O.A.S.I.S. annual Golf tournament is the food pantry’s major fund raiser. Funds raised at last year’s event allowed the pantry to purchase and distribute additional food to 1,600 low-income school-aged children during summer months when school meals are not available. Funds from this year’s event will go towards the purchase of a much-needed used van for daily food item pick-ups from local grocery stores
For further details about the golf tournament visit the pantry web site at www.OASISfoodpantry.com, the golf tournament brochure is available for viewing on-line in the upcoming events calendar.
Canned fruit for the O.A.S.I.S. pantry shelves. Fresh fruits are not always available this time of year and the pantry has been running short on canned fruit, any donations would be appreciated.
New or gently used books for ages 2-7 years are needed to fill our children’s birthday bags. Birthday bags include a cake mix, frosting, and a book for the child.
Donations can be dropped off at your church or at the Pantry, 1814 Boone’s Lick Road, St. Charles, MO 63301.
Thank you for supporting this mission,
