The third annual Soup for Shelter in the Woodruff and Minocqua area was held Saturday, April 26, and through the efforts of many volunteers, including a number of youth, a total of $2,100 was raised for the Northwoods Alliance for Temporary Housing – the organization that operates Frederick Place in Rhinelander.

The event was held at Holy Family Catholic Church on County Highway J in Woodruff. 

Frederick Place is a temporary, emergency shelter for those who are homeless.

Among those helping with the effort April 26 were 10 teens who helped make the bowls used that night. The students also helped to serve the soup. 

The students, from Holy Family’s faith formation class, spent time glazing the bowls prior to the event with the help of Lakeland Union High School art teacher Leah Wood and volunteer instructor John Langer.

In addition, for those who donated $10 or more, they were eligible to take home one of the bowls made by the students. 

Twenty-four gallons of soup was donated for the event by various restaurants, while raffle baskets were also given away. There were baskets with Wisconsin items, and baskets with products for babies and pets, as well as an opportunity for those attending to participate in a silent auction.

Frederick Place offers emergency shelter for families and individuals from Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, Oneida and Vilas counties. 

The shelter has been open three years and has provided shelter for more than 300 individuals.  

If you would like more information about Frederick Place, call Tammy Modic, executive director, at 715-369-9777.
