The 2018-19 State Project for the Ohio Society Children of the American Revolution (O.S.C.A.R.) is twofold; it is both monetary
and service based. For the first Project O.S.C.A.R. members and seniors will be raising money for “Our Daily Bread”
a non-profit soup kitchen and social center located in southwest Ohio. Our Daily Bread provides stability and hope to guests
in need by offering meals, hospitality and services in a safe a respectful environment. It served 97,776 meals last year alone
to people in need in the Greater Cincinnati Area making it one of the largest soup kitchens in the State of Ohio.
There is also a service component to our State project, the second project we encourage local societies to volunteer time
and five donations of food to local food pantries. At our summer event at Glen Helen, members and seniors will have the opportunity
to decorate birthday cakes and fill birthday bags for the birthday program at Our Daily Bread. At the 2019 state conference,
members will tour “Our daily bread” and see how their donations brought hope to the lives of so many others.
In order to raise funds, we are selling silver Knife and Fork pins for $10.00 and Silver pea pod key chains for $15.00
each society will be given 10 pins and 5 key chains to sell and return at the state Conference what you do not sell. You will
receive your Pins and Key chains at the Summer event. Hopefully we will sell all our items and be able to present a large
check to “Our Daily Bread” at our annual banquet.
