Seeds of Hope
We ended our Summer 2016 project of Seeds of Hope once again with great success. Social Action sponsors a fresh market stand in front of the church beginning each Sunday from mid- June (hours – 10 to 1:00) through mid-August.
Bauer Westeren has been our volunteer managing the scheduling of this event for several years now. Farmer Louis Reid has become well known to all of us over the years as our supplier of great fresh produce and this year we broke our sales record by selling $1500 worth of produce for him. UUCC and many other Columbia community churches take part in this project to help low-income farmers. It is a nice invitation to the community as they are out on Sunday morning walks to stop by the fresh market stand and pick up fresh produce from the smiling faces of the volunteers that assist for the UUCC Seeds of Hope .
