Drawing on F.B.I. statistics, the website OnlyInYourState.com recently rated O’Fallon as the fifth safest of Missouri cities with populations of more than 10,000. At about 82,000 residents, O’Fallon is the largest City to be named among the “Top 10” safest cities, and it is the only St. Charles County municipality on the list.

“We can be extremely proud that O’Fallon continues to be a safe place to live, work and play,” said Mayor Bill Hennessy. “It is a testament to our residents, our businesses and the men and women of our O’Fallon Police Department. Your dedication to caring for your homes, your neighborhoods and our entire community is the reason we have received this honor.”

To show appreciation for deployed U.S. troops, donations of pocket-sized packages of food, personal care items and other useful supplies are being collected through O’Fallon’s Support Our Troops Military Supply Drive. The drive kicks off August 11 and continues through September 11, with multiple donation sites throughout the community.

“Our troops overseas deeply appreciate snacks and practical items from home,” said Kathy Halstead, O’Fallon’s Volunteer Services Manager. “The donations will be sorted, packaged and shipped as part of National Day of Service and Remembrance projects on September 12, which will be coordinated by Volunteer Services. We’re also encouraging people to contribute signed ‘thank you’ notes and cards for the troops, and we hope to include at least one personal message of gratitude on behalf of the O’Fallon community in each package.”
