COVID-19 Resources and Information
Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Acts (CARES). Inside the CARES Act it has allocations of $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed, known as the Paycheck Protection Program. These loans will be 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses. More importantly these loans my be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payroll during this economic crises or restore their payroll. There will be more details released in the upcoming days and as we receive them we will push them out to all of our members.

“Find the Helpers”
C&C Sports & Spectra Graphics collaborated with O’Fallon First United Methodist Church on a T-shirt drive for which proceeds will benefit local businesses, first responders and health care workers. You can get your t-shirt here
The O’Fallon Food Pantry is temporarily closed. In response, 1UMC has opened their trailer for food donations. Hours of operation are:
Tuesday: 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Wednesday: 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Thursday to Sunday: 10:00 a.m. – Noon
The pantry is in need of cold cereal, fruit cups, pop tarts, and canned foods consisting of: chicken, tuna, fruit, chili with beans, spaghetti, ravioli, soup, canned stew, ramen noodles, and peanut butter. They ask that you please not bring anything in a glass jar.
All you need to do is bring any donations you can to the church during our listed hours. We will have the trailer open, and a volunteer watching the trailer from their car. You just need to put your donation in the trailer and drive away. We want to keep our social distancing practices in place as much as possible.
We will be making our first delivery run to the pantry on Friday, and we plan to keep doing so every Friday for as long as this crisis is in place.
If you would be willing to help keep watch over the trailer from your car, or would be willing to make our delivery on Friday to the Belleville pantry, please contact Rob Stoelzle at 618-581-0224 or email@example.com.
