The staff at Associated Charities continues to help our community in ways I cannot explain, but am forever grateful for. They are a true blessing to Ashland and the families who call this area home.

I love these ladies at Associated Charities I don't go in much for help but when I do they never turn me away and they are so polite.

A teacher asked a little boy on the playground why he wasn't wearing his winter coat. The boy replied, "I don't have a winter coat and we don't have any money to buy one"! I was able to get a coat, hat and gloves from the Kids Closet at Associated Charities.

The Ashland County Food Bank has been serving families since 1980. We are proud to be able to offer a variety of items including: milk, eggs, cheese, sandwich meat, ground beef, sausage, chicken, roasts plus canned and boxed groceries. We also keep a supply of taxable items not available with food stamps (toilet paper, toothpaste, soaps and personal items).
Donations for the Food Bank are always welcome. They can be dropped off at our delivery door or you can make a donation through our donate button. We want to thank our many caring donors that make this all possible - Thank you!
