Monday, June 7, 2021It was disappointing to cancel last year’s Annual Golf Tournament but necessary to keep our volunteers and benefactors safe. 2020 is now in the rear-view mirror and we look forward to better days, sunny weather and spending time on the golf course with our O.A.S.I.S. friends and Golf enthusiasts.
Although many challenges remain the same, we learned a lot over the last year and feel able to bring back the Annual Golf Tournament with slight modifications. This year’s modified event will include a round of golf at beautiful Old Hickory Golf Club in St. Peters, practice time, premium gift, a box lunch, and beverages. Following the round of golf there will be a social hour for golfers and volunteers, and a small auction.
This year is the 14th Annual O.A.S.I.S. Golf Tournament and will honor the memory of Bob Schreiber, an ardent O.A.S.I.S. supporter and golfer. The golf tournament brochure is available for viewing HERE. We hope to see you there.
Youth Food Drive
This year the contest was not in the food drive but collecting food during a pandemic. The challenging times didn’t intimidate our church youth groups as a very successful food drive was held and the O.A.S.I.S. warehouse is now overflowing with food. A big thank you goes out to all the youth groups that participated, their leaders, and everyone that donated to help those less fortunate in our community.
Total healthcare cost of hunger and food insecurity is $160 billion a year. America’s hunger bill is much greater than we realize, affecting educational outcomes, labor productivity, crime rates, Gross Domestic Product and much more.
How You can Help
We feel so blessed to report that the O.A.S.I.S. warehouse is completely filled with food, but there are still ways you can help. You can bring a team and play golf at the O.A.S.I.S. Tournament, you can send a cash donation to the O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry, 1814 Boone’s Lick Road, St. Charles 63301; or donate through the O.A.S.I.S. web site. You can volunteer or offer your services to help with building maintenance. It takes all kinds of help to keep the pantry doors open. The O.A.S.I.S. Board and our clients are grateful for all the community support we receive.
