Linda, Carol and Joyce are just 3 of the many volunteers that help at our Kids Fest each year. We are so grateful to them for making everything we do possible.
What a group of kids we have here!! The Lighthouse Friends Youth Group from Christ Community Evangelical Free Church had a cereal drive and brought in a flatbed full of cereal! What an amazing group of young ones that are thinking of others. Their donation will go a long way in helping feed families in Ashland County.
Our local churches are the backbone of the Ashland County Food Bank. The Food Bank was started at Emmanuel United Methodist Church and in 2014 the Food Bank and Associated Charities merged into one organization. There are currently 28 local churches that support and make regular donations to the Food Bank.
School liaison came in for shoes: one child's shoes were held together with duck tape; one was wearing boots, he had no shoes; one little one had shoes so torn up that they fell off his feet at school.
A little girl came in wearing someone else's coat that was 2 -3 sizes too big. We got her a new coat, hat and gloves - HER SIZE! We got a big smile!! Although it was a warmer day, she would not take that coat off!
"Anyone who does anything to help a child in this life is a hero to me"
