Local Outreach

Outreach

 

Through the Ashland Presbyterian Church Outreach Mission we provide tangible gifts, like food and holiday gifts, or expand our reach through financial contributions to a wide range of local causes.

Ashland Presbyterian Church Food Bank

The church maintains a food bank which makes regular contributions to local families. http://www.ashlandpres@aol.com

CARITAS (Congregations Around Richmond Involved to Assure Shelter)

Once each year Ashland Presbyterian Church joins other Richmond-area churches in hosting homeless individuals from our area. We provide meals for a 24-hour period, transportation to hot showers and a laundromat, and warm fellowship. www.caritasshelter.org

Hanover Interfaith Free Clinics

Several times each year we provide dinners for volunteers at one of these five clinics that provide free medical and dental care to Hanover residents. We also help fund supplies and devices required for the clinics’ work. www.hanoverfreeclinics.com

At Christmas we work with the Hanover Department of Social Services to provide gifts to individuals who are physically or intellectually challenged. www.co.hanover.va.us/soclsvcs/default.htm
