All Saints Church in Washington Court House has raised field corn and soybeans for the past 11 years to fund its outreach programs, which benefit local Fayette County non-profit organizations.
These include St. Vincent de Paul, the former Well at Sunnyside, Second Chance Center of Hope, Life Pregnancy Center, Spirit of Christmas for Kids (S.O.C.K.S.), the Fayette County Food Pantry, and others. This year’s profit was approximately $20,000. The project has generated well over $100,000 over the years.
The 2021 project consisted of 31 acres of field corn. James Jacobs and Wayne Hidy managed the project and provided equipment, labor and inputs. The corn was sold to Cargill, one of the project’s sponsors.
The members of All Saints Church wish to thank the landowners who donated land for this year’s project: John Smalley and Vic Aleshire, both members of All Saints Church, and Dr. Stephanie and Troy McDonald. Without their generous donation, the program could not survive.
