O.A.S.I.S. News for April

2018 Youth Food Challenge…And the winner is Hope Lutheran!

It was another great year for the O.A.S.I.S. Church Youth Food Challenge. The donations just kept coming and we just kept counting and the total came to 22,567 items. We are sending a BIG thank you to the ten churches that participated this year. There will be many smiling faces at the pantry as we distribute all your donations. Great job everyone!

Help the Girl Scouts help the Pantry

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri are celebrating the 20th anniversary for the April Showers community service program. Girl Scouts, their troop leaders, families and friends help people in need by collecting personal care items. Last year more than 1.3 million personal care items were collected and distributed. The O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry and its clients greatly benefit from this yearly program. Please check your door or porch April 20 through 22 for the “April Showers Bag” distributed by your local Girl Scout troop and give generously.

April 20-22 Bag Distribution

April 21 Girl Scouts will be collecting hygiene items at local grocery stores.
April 28 Filled bags will be collected and counted, then distributed to pantry’s and shelters.

Get in the Swing of Things with the 12th Annual Golf Tournament

At O.A.S.I.S. our goal is to give our clients a variety of foods and hygiene products to make their lives better. Even with all the donations we receive, there are times we must purchase items to fulfill client needs. Additionally, this summer we are planning a Children’s Summer Food Program to provide food aid to families with school-aged children during the summer when free school meals are unavailable.

The O.A.S.I.S. Golf Tournament is our principal yearly fundraiser and is planned for Monday, June 4 at Old Hickory Golf Club in St. Peters.  We need your support to make this event a success. Here are some of the ways you can help:

•      Play golf or Captain a Foursome
•      Attend the Dinner
•      Donate to the Silent Auction
•      Volunteer at the event
•      Become a Sponsor
•      Sponsor a Family
