We are thrilled to report that pumpkin sales and donations this year totaled $13,700, which will be distributed among three worthy non-profit organizations. nourish.NJ (formerly The Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center), the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in Hillside, and the Pumpkin Fundraisers, who work cooperatively with the Navajo Nation in New Mexico.
The pumpkins are back! This October, PCCT will hold its 15th annual Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser to help address hunger in our area. Pumpkins of all sizes and a variety of colorful gourds will be on sale. PCCT buys them from the Navajo Indians in New Mexico, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale are divided equally between nourish.nj and the Community FoodBank of NJ. Help us to make this year’s Pumpkin Patch a success by volunteering to work at the Patch and purchasing a pumpkin and gourd.
