Food Drive to Benefit Operation Food Search a Big Success

Dan Barnett of BAMSL and Library Director Gail Wechsler with food donations received

Thanks to all who participated in our food drive , co-sponsored with St. Louis Attorneys Against Hunger, an initiative of the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis (BAMSL). The food drive took place from Monday May 21 until Friday June 29.  All proceeds benefited Operation Food Search, one of the region's largest non-profits focused on distributing food to our neighbors in need.  Two large bins were filled with donations received from our  library members, staff in our courthouse and at the Carnahan Courthouse and from other visitors during the month the drive took place. Approximately 418 pounds of food, plus monetary donations, were collected! Thank you all for your generosity!
