You Can Help Us Engage Families

Exciting News!  SOCAN’s Ashland Climate Action Team (A-CAT) is starting a children’s library to awaken interest, provide education, and offer solutions to climate change and saving our endangered Planet. You are lovingly invited to invest in this urgent & meaningful cause. If you are interested in engaging our children in working towards a sustainable future, please click here to donate for the purchase of books. (Then click on the box for “Write us a comment” and indicate that the donation is for the “Children’s library.”)

Request for donation or loan:  2 children size folding chairs for the reading table. These should be appropriate for 5-8 year old children and work with an 18″ table.
