Wheelchair Donation to Ashley Learning Center

Just as much as The Somerset’s staff love to help guests create treasured times, they also have a passion for giving back to the local community. With our partnership with the Ashley Learning Center, we have a list of items needed to help these children with special needs. Many guests have already generously brought down supplies.
