The Northwoods Alliance for Temporary Housing Inc. (NATH) held its 4th annual Soup for Shelter at Holy Family Church in Woodruff on April 20. Approximately $1,500 was raised for the continued operation of NATH’s Frederick Place shelter for those experiencing homelessness.
Attendees enjoyed a selection of soup choices that were donated by Reuland’s Catering. Dinner rolls were donated by Eagle Bakery and Schroeter’s Bakery. The Black Bear Bar provided crackers and Trigs donated the coffee. The Eagle River McDonald’s donated the orange drink, cups and serving dishes. A wide choice of desserts came from St. Anthony Church in Lac du Flambeau, St. Germain Lionesses, St. Germain Women’s Service Club, Community Church of Manitowish Waters and Holy Family. In addition to the soup supper, attendees participated in a silent auction and raffles.
