The Well at Sunnyside held its annual Christmas dinner Tuesday evening for the community to come and enjoy a hot meal.


The Well at Sunnyside is encouraging the agricultural community to take an opportunity to partner with them in an upcoming promotion for area farmers through the “Bring the HARVEST HOME” campaign.

The Well is a faith-based, non-profit organization founded in 2009 with the mission of helping those in need in Fayette County to meet their basic needs and strengthen their families. Through The Well’s core services – operation of a free store and provision of a hot meal program – they have cultivated relationships with the less fortunate in the community and bridging gaps to learn how The Well can further meet their needs.

The Well, located on Fayette Street in Washington C.H., also offers some innovative programs to families in the area, including laundry assistance for families and free income tax filing for low and moderate income working households. This summer, The Well is looking forward to expanding the free summer lunch program for school aged children, which offers area kids the opportunity to continue receiving a nutritious lunch when the school lunch program ends.

Over 30 local churches, many businesses, and individuals from all segments of the community are involved in the life of The Well. They also collaborate regularly with government agencies and other non-profit organizations to find more effective ways to utilize community resources together.

“The (enclosed) materials will outline an exciting opportunity for you to partner with other members of the Fayette County Agricultural Community and support the mission of The Well,” a letter from The Well reads. “We believe the agricultural community and The Well at Sunnyside will be powerful allies in committing the fruits of the harvest to working locally to combat poverty and hunger at home.”

This program has entry at multiple partner tiers which include:

– Legacy Partner – $5,000 or above – Legacy partners are choosing to invest deeply in the community and The Well desires to honor the confidence in the ability to achieve this mission by providing the following: top placement in a half page (at least) advertisement in the Record-Herald, Shopper’s Guide and ACRES of Southwest Ohio (monthly direct mail publication targeting over 10,000 landowners in 11 counties centered on Fayette, Highland, Clinton and Ross); a business logo or two business tag lines/contact reference included in all advertisements; reference on The Well’s website supporting businesses tab. which includes logo placement and link to a business web site or email for the year supported by the campaign (commencing on July 1); and reference in The Well’s direct mail campaign to up to 300 local farmers and landowners with an emphasis on Fayette County farmers.

– Heritage Partner – $1,000 – As a Heritage partner, a sponsor has responded to the call to participate in a way that can have a lasting impact and The Well wants to reflect the sponsors commitment as follows: prominent business name text placement with one tag line or contact reference in a half page (at least) advertisement in the Record-Herald, Shopper’s Guide and ACRES of Southwest Ohio; reference on our website supporting businesses tab which includes up to two tag lines or contact reference with link to a business website or email for the year of the campaign; and reference in The Well’s direct mail campaign to up to 300 local farmers and landowners with an emphasis on Fayette County farmers.

– Tradition Partner – $500 – The Well believes Tradition partners will be at the heart of this support and they want to show gratitude to them in the following ways: text business name placement in a half page (at least) advertisement in the Record-Herald, Shopper’s Guide and ACRES of Southwest Ohio; reference on The Well’s web site supporting businesses tab; and reference in The Well’s direct mail campaign to up to 300 local farmers and landowners with an emphasis on Fayette County farmers.

– Family Partner – $100 – Without Family, The Well states they wouldn’t have the tradition of agricultural at all. The Well will greatly value and honor family partners. Family partners will receive: reference on The Well’s web site supporting business tab; and reference in The Well’s direct mail campaign to up to 300 local farmers and landowners with an emphasis on Fayette County farmers.

– Community Partner – Any Amount – A Community Partner’s involvement will be assigned to the partner outcome that most closely complements the level of support chosen.

“The Bible says in Hebrews 13:16: Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God,” Chiquita Nash, free store director and volunteer coordinator for The Well said. “The agricultural community has always supported The Well at Sunnyside and we are very grateful and thankful for all they do. When you plant a seed, they grow if the ground is right. When they plant a seed of love, it increases the effectiveness of The Well to enrich those who have a need.”
