O'Fallon Progress

O’Fallon Police Department is hosting a Breakfast with Santa

The O’Fallon Township Rummage Sale presented Patty Strube of the O’Fallon Food Pantry another check for $5,000 for this year. The group gives a large “Thank you” to the O’Fallon Township for letting them do hold the sale, as well as to all the ladies and gents who work very hard two days a month to make it happen, and, of course, to the people who donate all the things. This brings a total of $12,000 the rummage sale has raised this year for the O’Fallon Food Pantry.
