One of Messiah’s local mission partners is in need of volunteers. There are a couple ways that you can be involved! The Food Pantry is seeking two people to do the Wednesday morning Schnucks/Dierbergs food donation pick-up. This entails pick-up and delivery of food items from the designated grocery stores. It takes about 3 hours (approximately 8 am to 11 am) using an O.A.S.I.S. cargo van. Drivers must have valid car insurance, a valid driver’s license, and the ability to lift at least 30 pounds unassisted. If you or you know someone who might be interested, please contact Mike Wraspir by email at OASISfoodpan@aol.com or by phone 636-723-0037 at the food pantry.
The O.A.S.I.S Thrift Store is up and running but is short on volunteers. Selling donated items at the Thrift Store is one way the pantry raises funds to purchase food and personal care items for distribution. Thrift Store hours are 10 am until 3 pm Wednesday through Saturday and Thursday evenings 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm. If you or your church group (men or women) are looking for a fun service project and can give about 5 hours of your time per week to the Thrift Store, please contact Diana Mayfield by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 314-583-5599.
