Pantry Help Needed

Do you have a few hours to share on Monday mornings? Do you like variety? Then this might be the volunteer role for you. The pantry is searching for a volunteer to help with miscellaneous pantry tasks which include, but are not limited to, sorting, boxing, and shelving of food items. This volunteer role is partnered with an experienced pantry worker to learn pantry organization and functions from the inside out. If you have an interest in learning more about this volunteer role, please contact Mike Wraspir at the pantry by phone 636-723-0037, or email at oasisfoodpan.com. Thank you for considering this opportunity.

Making Children Smile – O.A.S.I.S. Christmas Shop

This year the O.A.S.I.S. Christmas Shop outfitted 650 St. Charles children in need with Christmas gifts and a warm winter coat. This is a wonderful opportunity to help those in need have a Merry Christmas. We feel blessed that so many generous people donated coats, toys, and their time during the busy holiday season to make this event a success.

Five Months and Counting – O.A.S.I.S. Golf Tournament and Banquet

The O.A.S.I.S. Golf Tournament and Banquet is five months away – but it’s not too early to start recruiting a foursome for an entertaining day on the golf course with a delicious meal to follow. The 13th Annual O.A.S.I.S. Golf Tournament and Banquet is scheduled for Monday, June 3, 2019 at Old Hickory Golf Club. This is the food pantry’s major fund raiser, and monies raised will be used to purchase food and personal care items distributed to pantry clients. You can still support this event even if you are not a golfer, just get a group together to attend the banquet – it’s a fun time for everyone. Let’s make this year’s Tournament the best one yet!

Thank you for continuing to support this important mission,
