In an effort to reach those who need support from the community, O’Fallon’s Volunteer Services Department is launching its 15th annual Cornucopia of Care food drive on November 9. Collection canisters located at various sites around the community are set to receive donations of non-perishable canned and boxed food and personal care items through Saturday, December 19.
