Ashland Christian Emergency Services (ACES) provides a variety of items, emergency services, transient aide and medical equipment for Ashland and Hanover county residents in need.  This locally operated nonprofit works in coordination with local social, mental health, safe house, and aging services.

St James the Less supports this ministry with donations of non-perishable food, clothing, and other items as needed.  The youth groups and Sunday school classes gather and donate food items.

If this is a ministry you are interested in, volunteers are needed to transport items to ACES or to assist at the center when it is opened.
