Book and Toy Drive

The Almeda and Obenchain fires have brought another huge hardship to our community, so when we heard that Jackson County Library Services was launching a book and toy drive for children and teens impacted by the fires, we knew that the Ashland Friends would want to be a part of it. And you really stepped up! Karen Spence’s front porch overflowed with books and toys and games for all ages, and we took two stuffed loads to the Medford Library for distribution throughout the county. Youth Services Coordinator Brystan Strong reported that the whole drive was an enormous success. Thanks so much to everyone who contributed!

Here is Nancy Clark delivering one of Ashland’s full carts.
