Get Involved

You Make a Difference

Just one person donating time or essential items can make the difference between crisis and stability, illness and health, or loneliness and support. Just one person can be a light in someone’s life and a hero during a difficult time of transition. Will that person be you?

Associated Charities is supported by over 75 volunteers throughout the year–people like you who want to enrich lives and experience the rewards of supporting the local community.


There are many ways to get involved with Associated Charities and the Ashland County Food Bank. Consider giving your time to some of the following departments or events. (And yes, we have a lot of fun!)

• Food Bank

Food Drives

• Kids Clothes Closet

Back to School Program
