VIDEO: Church Without Walls

ASHLAND — Church Without Walls, a program that started four years ago to feed the homeless in Ashland, was busy at it again on Saturday morning in Central Park.

CWW is an organization that has used resources from several churches throughout the area to feed the homeless every Saturday morning - rain, snow or shine - of the year. Anyone is welcome to take part of a hot breakfast, which is provided by area churches and groups. A sack lunch is given to anyone who comes as well. Also, all are invited to hear preaching in an impromtu setting on a basketball court behind Crabbe Elementary.

The entire service usually lasts less than 90 minutes, including serving and eating the hot breakfast. Area businesses, like Panera Bread, also participate by providing food donations for the breakfast.

"It's a blessing to anyone who participates," said Kevin Campbell, the pastor of Plaza Nazarene. "It's something we believe is necessary for our community. It shows the homeless we care about them."
