Uptown Westerville is a Place for Kindness

Uptown Westerville is a great place to shop, live, work, eat, meet and play.

Throughout the year, Uptown merchants make helping others a seamless part of their lives.

Without a thought or fanfare, Uptown Merchants reach out to the people in our community who may need some extra help, like Kriss Rogers of Outside Envy who raffled a gift basket to benefit the Westerville Area Resource Ministry (WARM) during the holidays, Renee Kropat of Gallery 202 who's annual shop window decorating contest collects favorite window votes by collecting canned goods for WARM, Doug Winbigler and the Amish Originals Furniture Co. staff who contributed their time and an Amish Originals' delivery truck to haul toys collected by kids at St. Paul School to St. John's in Columbus for distribution to families in need, and the WARM/Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market Fresh Green Progam presenting farmers' market coupons to families that may have trouble affording fresh produce.

The member merchants of the Westerville Uptown Merchants Association wish you a wonderful holiday season and thank you for your acts of kindness when you help those in need and support local associations like WARM and Westerville Caring and Sharing, wherever you live.
