In this season of gratitude, we want to make sure our angels know how much we value them.
There is so much need in Ashe County and so little money to go around, but every time we ask y’all just throw your hearts wide open.. and we are so incredibly thankful.
Odd Fellows are by nature a humble bunch, not usually inclined towards patting themselves on the back. I often notice where we fail to let the community know what we’re doing, so here is a rundown of the last month or so.
- Our emergency food stash is full again!
- A neighbor on disability no longer has a big hole in her roof.
- We helped facilitate the avoidance of a foreclosure by bringing a family and an anonymous donor together.
- About $500 in medication assistance.
- About $700 in heating and electric assistance.
- About $500 in car repairs.
All in all, since October first, about $5000 in emergency relief to our Ashe County neighbors! Now that’s just ODD!
Our main fundraiser is our monthly pancake breakfast held on the 2nd Saturday of every month at Smethport Methodist Church from 8-11.
All the pancakes, bacon, sausage, juice and coffee you can eat for whatever you can pay! Plus, this Saturday December 14th we have the extra special treat of Scot Pope to entertain us. if you’ve never heard Scot i promise you’re in for a treat. I have to tell y’all, these breakfasts are starting to feel like family gatherings!
We realize everyone who wants to come can’t always make it, and we know there may be times over the winter that we have to cancel due to weather.
So we would like to invite you to a Virtual Pancake Breakfast ..
