O'Fallon Progress

OFP 092018 Around Town

Organizers of the O’Fallon Township Rummage Sale were very excited to be able to present a check to the O’Fallon Food Pantry again this year for $6,000. Carol Scheibel co-chairman for the event is presenting the check to Carla Clatanoff of the O’Fallon Food Pantry. A group of men and women work very hard to set this event up the second Saturday of every month. The rummage sale has been averaging about $12,000 to $15,000 a year for this great cause. The Rummage Sale crew would like to send a large “Thank You” to O’Fallon Township for sponsoring this event.
