Happy New Year, 2021!
It has been over 38 years since John and Carol DeGuire founded Feed My People. We are so grateful for the incredible number of volunteers who have loyally and tirelessly served this organization. However, the 2020 pandemic changed things dramatically. To further protect our volunteers, staff and clients, both Feed My People locations now have air scrubber technology that continually removes 99.9% of harmful contaminants from our buildings. As the vaccines become available, administered, and your health permits, we welcome you to once again consider joining us, on-site, as a volunteer. Please reach out to our volunteer coordinator, Stephanie Berberich, 314-631-4900 x 315, when you are ready to come back.
Thank you to the volunteers that helped make the 2020 Adopt-a-Family and Giving Tree programs so successful. Adopt-a-Family volunteers in High Ridge were Linda Zilch, Sharon Majoros and Roy Cayton. In South County, Judy McBrady and Sharon Komerous spearheaded this program. High Ridge Giving Tree program volunteers who manned the Elf Shop were Shelley Duff, Phil Bicklein, Mark Duchow and Tracey Emerson. The South County Giving Tree volunteers included Marie and Tami Blasi, Karen Kampmann, Jackie and Alyssa Coplin, Nancy Brewer, Morgan Jurphy, Donna Proffer, Jeannie Burkemper, Bev Ervin, Barb Jakubeck, Anna Huebner, Lillia Roland, Malaina Wright, and Sara Leay.
“My name is Bob and I am writing this short letter to thank you for your service in suppling food to the unfortunate people who are in need of help due to extreme circumstances. I have been receiving food from your wonderful organization for the past 5-years, and if not for Feed My People I would have died a long time ago. Everybody that works for Feed My People are special, by that I mean the courtesy and being very nice and helpful I cannot describe to what I feel in my heart. Thank you for doing this wonderful work. May GOD almighty bless all of you and Merry Christmas & Happiest of New Year”
Why Do You Choose to Volunteer at Feed My People?
Because so many people have been out of work, furloughed or lost their jobs during the pandemic, shoppers are looking for a broad inventory of low cost items and great deals when they shop. The Thrifty Hanger thrift stores have been busy!
Masks are mandatory, social distance is strongly encouraged and routine sanitizing is done throughout the day.
Come on in and see our great fall items...it’s great shopping weather!
