Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: A Simple Way to Do Good

No kind action ever stops with itself. 
Amelia Earhart

The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market supports WARM (Westerville Area Resource Ministry). WARM is a tremendous resource and the WARM food bank offers a helping hand so everyone in the Westerville City School District has access to healthy food, no matter the need.

This Friday (11.14) and Saturday (11.15), Meijer @ Polaris and N. State, is doubling their match for every $10 Simply Give card purchased on behalf of WARM. So, your purchase of a $10 Simply Give card actually means $30 for WARM! This is our kind of math!

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the

John F. Kennedy

We cannot express our appreciation and respect any better than Moving Arts' Louis Schwartzberg's beautiful video.
