Since 12/15/2011:

Seeds of Hope wants to thank everybody for all the food and monetary donations given throughout the holidays. It was wonderful!

Due to Covid-19, we have been forced to change our plans. Instead of our annual February concerts, Seeds of Hope will offer only two  events in 2021 -- but they will be amazing!

Seeds of Hope Benefit Concerts Featuring Chris Atkins and Friends:

Spaces for cars and golf carts at The Grove are all reserved already, but we invite you to bring your own lawn chairs, park in our east parking lot, and take the shuttle to The Grove.

Bring your generous monetary gifts and donations of non-perishable food items to a 65-minute concert for Seeds of Hope featuring the music of singer-songwriter Chris Atkins and some of his talented musical friends. Chris and his band will appear with guest artists Chelsea Kimball and Hannah Kalisch, performing songs from Chris’ recordings and other favorites at 5 pm and again at 7 pm on Sunday, February 28, at The Grove, Live Oaks Community Church’s outdoor venue. You can now reserve your free ticket online at (one ticket per golf cart or car). Folks are welcome to remain in carts or to bring lawn chairs to sit outside, as long as social distance is maintained. All donations will directly benefit the Wildwood Food Pantry and Wildwood Soup Kitchen. Everyone who contributes will receive a free copy of one of Chris’ CDs (limit one per family), while supplies last. Live Oaks is located behind Walmart on 466 (12070 CR 103, Oxford).
