Some Organizations We Support
ASHLEY'S PLACE CAFE AND ICE CREAM SHOP
Ashley's Place Cafe and Ice Cream Shop is a small restaurant with a limited menu. Our goal is to offer people a warm place to come, enjoy a meal and feel a part of the community. We provide free soup on Saturdays with entertainment like Bingo or sometimes Karaoke! We are happy to be able to supply our community with free holiday meals, including fun activities, gifts and door prizes.
We also rent our cafe for special events. The profit from the Cafe helps to keep Ashley's Place operational and funds many of our programs and activities. We are blessed and thankful for this space and the ability to share it with all those who enter!
DONATION AND SORTING FACILITY
Located in Ashley's Place is our donation and sorting facility. This space was what we needed to house the many donations that come to us each day.
We accept clean, gently used clothing of all kinds, blankets, towels, small household appliances, toiletries and non-perishables. Here the donations are sorted, tagged and delivered to the organizations we support. Often many items are turned into beautiful comfort packages and blessing bags for those less fortunate or in need.
EDDY'S TEDDY BEAR LIBRARY
Eddy's Teddy Bear Library located in Ashley's Place is named in honour of Ashley's cousin Eddy. Eddy passed when he was eleven years old after being hit by a car. He was such a big fan of teddy bears, and we wanted to call this library space after him. Our Teddy bear with flashlights, teddy bears, and books that we add to our comfort packages are donated to our library in honour of Eddy.
We use this space as a warm and inviting place for people of all ages to come. We offer crochet classes and other events. We also have a resource area were we can help people in need and give them recommendations based on their circumstances.
One of our favourite fundraisers is our online auctions. We hold these regularly, posting items online and allowing people the opportunity to bid until closing time.
All of the items auctioned are graciously donated; they are sorted and photographed. We then put them on our Facebook Page - Get Away and Experience Paradise at Ashley's Place Inc.
Proceeds of this event go to funding activities and programs in our community.
