Fairview partners with the Voluntary Action Center (VAC) on several different community outreaches. The two covered by this ministry are the Warm Up Columbia! campaign that takes place in the summer and the VAC Christmas project in November and December. The former involves colleting new or gently used blankets, coats, sweaters, gloves, caps, etc. For the Christmas project, the congregation ”adopts” several individuals and families, providing them with a Christmas dinner and gifts based on lists they provide. The major volunteer need of these ministries is not for staffing, but for generous donations from the congregation.
