Wednesday, Jan. 8 is the date for the third Annual Soup For Shelter in Eagle River. The first Congregational UCC Church located on First Street in Eagle River will host this fund-raising event. Proceeds from this benefit will go to Frederick Place, the temporary, emergency shelter that is operated by the Northwoods Alliance for Temporary Housing, Inc. (NATH).
Doors will open at 5 p.m. to give diners time to make bids on numerous silent auction items or to purchase tickets for the bucket raffles. Everyone is welcome. Admission is by free-will donation. Area restaurants will be donating a delicious variety of soups for this benefit. Come enjoy a wonderful soup supper and have fun as you support those who are experiencing homelessness in our Northwoods area.
Frederick Place offers emergency shelter for families and individuals from Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, Oneida and Vilas Counties. The annual operating costs for the shelter are $205,000. These costs include 24-hour staff salaries, case management, food, utilities, supplies, insurance, equipment and maintenance.
