Christmas Food Drive

OILA sponsered a Christmas Food Drive with the proceeds being donated to the local Sharing and Caring Food Bank.  Donations were dropped off at the Fire Station.  A special thanks to all those who donated. 

Michele and Bob Seitz, OILA members and Sharing and Caring volunteers and 2019 Sharing and Caring Board members, delivered some 255 pounds of food, the most ever donated by an OILA food drive.  (Yes, that is Jim Simpson's truck and Jim took the picture.)
