City of Oshkosh takes part in Bare Essentials campaign

(Oshkosh, WI.) The city of Oshkosh is proud to join other community partners in the Bare Essentials Campaign to benefit the Oshkosh Food Pantry and Saint Vincent DePaul.

The food and clothing drive runs from June 7th - 18th and is organized by the Oshkosh Self-Sufficiency Project.

The most needed items are peanut butter, canned tuna, toothpaste, shampoo, toilet paper, underwear, and socks.

As part of the campaign the Oshkosh Public Library will implement their “Food for Fines” program. For each non-perishable food item that is taken to the library during the campaign the library will forgive one dollar in fines up to a total of three dollars.

The other city drop-off locations include the City Hall lobby, Oshkosh Community Media Services, Oshkosh Police Department, Fire Station #15 (101 Court St .), Oshkosh Seniors Center, and all Oshkosh Transit Buses.
