Yardley Methodist’s Pumpkin Patch Receives Food Donations for Penndel Food Pantry – thereporteronline
The annual Pumpkin Patch at Yardley United Methodist Church opens again on Oct. 16 at noon and remains open every day from noon to 6 pm through Oct. 31
Hundreds of pumpkins of all sizes and types will be available for sale, with proceeds from the sale used to fund the church’s two summer mission trips. Visit the Pumpkin Patch at Scammell’s Corner to purchase pumpkins for your fall decorating, for gifts, or just to enjoy walking through the Patch and taking pictures of your family and friends there.
The pumpkins are grown on the Navajo Reservation in Farmington, New Mexico, providing year-round employment for Native Americans in an area of the country with 42% unemployment. This year, “The Pumpkin Patch” will also welcome your donations of non-perishable food items, to be delivered to the Penndel Food Pantry along with YUMC’s regular monthly food donations.
In the coming weeks, there will be a permanent receptacle in the church’s parking lot for receiving the community’s food donations for the Penndel Food Pantry. There is a particular need for protein-rich foods.
Thank you for whatever you can provide!
