Director's Update:  


I am happy to announce that I have made the decision to retire as Executive Director effective March 31st after 10 wonderful years.  This decision was made after much thought and consideration, I felt this was a great time to pass the keys to this amazing organization.  This has been a labor of love for me over these past 10 years.  It is with a glad and humble heart that I thank each and every one of you that have supported me in so many ways.  Stay tuned!

Keeping Kids Warm

With this frigid Ohio weather it is so important that every child have a nice warm coat, a hat and pair of mittens as well as a warm pair of boots.  We have a nice supply, so if you know of anyone that needs coats for their children, send them our way.  They just need to be an Ashland County resident!

 In the past few months, we asked you to be "heroes" for the children and their families in this community.  We were beyond thrilled that you did just that!  Your support made a difference  in so many lives, be it food, toys, gifts, winter coats, hats, mittens, clothing, etc.  Through each of us, God continues to provide the provisions that are needed to help  families in our community that are struggling.                    ~Rosemarie
