  Original Published: 8/18/2013Incoming freshmen at Ashland University got the opportunity to learn about the people in nearby neighborhoods and help support those in need in town this past weekend as they canvassed the area. As part of Operation Weekend Program at AU, freshmen students like Dalton Lawrence visited approximately 1,300 homes in the 12th Annual Feed Ashland food collection. Lawrence says he enjoys meeting his now-fellow Ashlanders and becoming more acquainted with the area and at the same time providing a great service for those in need. AU students distributed plastic bags a week ago to neighboring residents, asking them to fill them with non-perishable food items. The items will be donated to the Ashland County Food Bank, who with Associated Charities, assisted nearly 20,000 people last year.
