Update #9

It was a good morning this Saturday morning to meet neighbors, give away food and clothes, and sell donated Easter baskets.

We will be setting up again this week on Main Street at lunch time Monday at Spinster Books and Good Friday (weather permitting). We'll have Easter baskets and handicrafts made by the homeless.

All proceeds from the sales go directly to help the homeless.

Special thanks to Lisa and Ed Ochsenbauer, Ken and Terry Zivic, Red Cliff Tribe & The Knights of Columbus.

Thank you for all for all you do!

Update #6

Dear Ashland Area Homeless Helpers,

While Mary continues to thrive in her new apartment and continues to connect to even more services, I am writing you a urgent need facing our Ashland Area homeless. At least 25 of our homeless community are losing their motel vouchers. With few if any choices before them, this means that some or all will end up in tents and other make-shift and temporary shelter. The need for help is urgent and great.

Please read Jeanna's note below. Thank you for all you do.

ISO of tents, pillows and blankets urgently for homeless in our area. Need is desperately high and immediate. Items also needed are heavy duty garbage/industrial bags. Back packs gladly accepted and needed. Items can be new, used (but still usable).

Drop off site and times: Saturday (3/20) and Sunday (3/21) from 2:30 to 4:30. I will be parked in parking lot of storage unit on 6th St west between the purple park and Ellis Kwik trip. Look for signs and old silver 4-door sedan.

Thank you kindly

Update #2

Greetings, Homeless Helpers,
This is just a partial list of what your donations and faith have done this past week. Thank you so much.
- The $166 from the Fundly campaign paid for a fine that was preventing a mother with two young children (6 and 9) from receiving motel vouchers and having a place to stay. The money also paid for copies of a new intake form that will help us with recordkeeping.
- Canned food, blankets, and pizza was given out to the homeless
- Transport to medical appointments, the pharmacy, and the laundromat was provided
- We jumpstarted Mary's van and handed her $220 from her GoFundMe campaign. She has lodging and food for the next week and has had lodging, food, money, and better access to services since 12/14/20.
- Calls were made to connect services for our homeless
- Preparations continued for the Valentine's Day "Warming Our Heart" event which will serve meals to over 65 individuals on tomorrow.
Thank you for caring, and thank you for all you do. ❤

Update #1

Greetings Kind Hearts,

Here is an update of our efforts to keep our Ashland Area homeless out of the elements while we continue to experience life-threatening cold in the northwoods. This week we delivered canned food, blankets, and pizzas to some of our homeless. Our 24/7 all-volunteer group also continued to do outreach and transport and continued to work on making connections to long-term, stable housing and other resources.

Here is our more recent video update:

Please feel free to connect with us on Facebook at the Ashland WI Homeless Help page and look for our matching challenge in the 2/12 Ashland Daily Press.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity. It means the world to some of our most vulnerable community members.
