Food Shelf Giving Throughout the Year

Our Savior’s raised funds with our Annual S(o)uper Bowl of Caring Day on Super Bowl Sunday! The proceeds we collect for this benefit the Quad Cities Food Shelf to tackle hunger in central St. Louis County.

During the year, we have several events and special  times that we collect funds to give to Quad Cities Food Shelf, like giving in March, when funds are matched in the state of Minnesota through Food Share! WELCA, our Women of the ELCA group also gives regularly to combat hunger in St. Louis County.  We also collect funds during Lent for the local food shelves.

There are many ways you can give, along with others at OSLC, to help families and children thrive in our area and beyond. You will find that people here have big, generous hearts, and are always willing to help area organizations keep food on the shelf for those  who may need that little extra to get through the month.

It’s S(o)uper Bowl time!

The countdown to the Big Game has begun — and Our Savior’s youth hopes they can count on you to “Tackle Hunger.”Souper_Bowl_of_Caring_Logo_with_Web_Address

OSLC Youth will join 573 groups across the nation in the Souper Bowl of Caring, one of the largest hunger-reduction efforts in the nation. Since the “Bowl” kicked off on Jan 21, these groups have raised more than $2 million in cash and food donations for local charities.

Again this year, OSLC’s Souper Bowl collections will go to the Quad Cities Food Shelf. Youth will be at the church doors holding soup pots following the service to collect donations. Just drop your donation in the pot representing your favorite Super Bowl team — and help gain a victory over hunger on the Range.

 

Food Shelf

Why does Our Savior’s have a grocery cart parked in its entryway? For food shelf donations! Drop off nonperishable items anytime — we’ll deliver them to the Quad Cities Food Shelf.

 

Holiday baskets

Each holiday season, Our Savior’s makes up food baskets for local people in need. You can donate food — or your time to pack and deliver. Watch the church entryway for the food basket poster, then sign up to lend a helping hand to our neighbors.
