Pumpkins with a Purpose!
Trinity will again be having the Pumpkin Patch fundraiser to support local and international outreach.
We receive the pumpkins grown on Navajo Indian land in New Mexico, and this project employs Navajo people. We take the pumpkins on consignment with no upfront costs. We are not are not responsible for any unsold pumpkins or any loss due to spoilage or theft.
We keep a percentage of everything we sell—last year that was just over $1400. These proceeds go to the Haiti Feeding program, Rural Alaskan Mission work, Operation Christmas Child and Eastern Illinois Food Bank.
This year the Pumpkin Patch will be open October 16 – 31 from noon – 6pm.
Thank you to everyone that helped last year! Please step up again this year—we can’t do it without you! Here some ways that you can help:
The unloading will be Sunday, October 15 at 12:30; lunch will be provided. Many hands make light work This is a fun activity for all ages.
