Our Pumpkin patch virtual fundraiser is LIVE!
As you know, we are not having our regular Pumpkin Patch this year due to Covid-19. It is of uttermost importance to us to make sure we do not spread this horrible disease. We are all saddened by this but have decided to continue our fundraising for People Helping People.
The Pantry has opened its doors to distribute food to more than 180 Burlington families, prepared a summer lunch program for children along with continuing to support the Burlington Covenant for Basic Needs and the upcoming Holiday Program. The client base has increased by 40% this year. And there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for the needs of the Burlington community.
Please help us help People Helping People.
Each Year, during the month of October, we create a pumpkin patch on our lawn. We sell pumpkins and gourds, have raffles, games and picture taking. Many churches, service organizations, business, and other volunteers help with the selling.
All of the profits are given to People Helping People in order to support the town food pantry which is located on our property. The pumpkins are sent to us on a “consignment basis” meaning we do not pay for all the pumpkins, just the ones we sell and we do not have to pay anything upfront. These pumpkins are grown on a Navajo reservation in New Mexico which provides jobs for Native Americans.
If you are a church, service organization, or business, and would like to help us sell pumpkins to raise money for People Helping People, please give us a call or send us an email.
